Read full description of the books:
Although we stare until our eyes go fuzzy
nothing stirs, no whisker, not a nostril.
The pond has want of life but we live hopeful:
the fringing sedge is dense, the water scuzzy
and these impediments can well excuse the
absence of movement. At least we have a photo,
a snap displaying capybara profiles,
unmistakable if somewhat muzzy.
A quarter hour ago the pair revealed
their forms in a dash between pools but now they’re sleepers
sunk in a swamp. Take note: Ellisian Fields
are wild and tangled places. If you’ve failed
to glimpse a twitch of life look closer, deeper.
You never know what treasures that might yield.
Ellisian Fields is a selection of 43 of the best poems that Tim Ellis has written over almost 20 years. Some of them are popular performance poems that have not previously been published, some are competition winners, and others are samples from Tim's three collections. Enjoy the birds of the world in colour, explore the rainforests of Central America, wear yourself out going around the world in three minutes, tingle in trepidation as a girl meets a unicorn in a dark wood at midnight, or just take yourself off on a crap world holiday!

Read information about the authorTim Ellis lives in Harrogate, North Yorkshire in the UK, where he runs a small gardening business. He is fascinated by wildlife, especially birds, and with his partner the artist Robbie Burns he has travelled around much of the world seeking out the rare and the beautiful.
As a poet he divides his talents equally between page and stage. His first book was a collection of 40 sonnets around a theme of birds called Birds of the World in Colour, published by Flarestack in 2004, and his second book was a poetic journey through Latin America called Gringo on the Chickenbus, published by Stairwell Books in 2011.
Most recently he has published On The Verge, an e-book which he is selling to raise funds for rhinoceros conservation.
His poems have appeared in several magazines including The Dalesman, Orbis and the Poetry Society’s Poetry News. He has won many prizes including 1st prize in the 2011 Huddersfield Grist Poetry Competition.
On the performance side, he is a well known face at slams, festivals and Open Mics throughout the North of England. He is a previous winner of the Ilkley Literature Festival Open Mic Competition and in 2011 he won the first York Poetry Slam. He can occasionally be found at poetry events in York and Leeds, but his principal haunt is Poems, Prose and Pints at the Tap & Spile pub in Harrogate, of which he is an organiser.
