The Arms I've Loved
& other poems

The Poems of Martin Probert

Inspirational and soul-stirring poems


of love,
of betrayal,
of loss,
of death,
of people met,
of animals observed,
of waiting,


of art and science,
of journeys by foot, by train, by ship,
of mountains, of moorland,
of deafness, of disobedience,
of the author’s memory of an orphanage,
of a drunk’s memory of paradise.


The Arms I’ve Loved and Other Poems contains poetry in many forms. They range in length from 3-line haiku to the 348-line mini-epic ‘Ghost Feud (Blueprint for a Movie)’.
