About the "Between the Lines" blog

Our latest exhibition "Between the Lines" reflects our response to the commemoration of the 1914-18 conflict.

This blog will focus on stories behind the work by the E.A.S.T artists as well as looking at other artistic and cultural commemorations around the UK that relate to WWI.

A Poplar and the Moon

Today is National Poetry Day so it seems appropriate to post a poem that has inspired the work of EAST member, Liz Hammond - Siegfried Sassoon's A Poplar and the Moon.

There stood a Poplar, tall and straight;

The fair, round Moon, uprisen late,

Made the long shadow on the grass

A ghostly bridge ‘twixt heaven and me.

But May, with slumberous nights, must pass,

And blustering winds will strip the tree.

And I’ve no magic to express

The moment of that loveliness;

So from these words you’ll never guess

The stars and lilies I could see.

EAST's new exhibition Between the Lines opens at the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexander Palace, London on Wednesday 8 October 2014. Liz's work will be just one of the pieces on display. Our stand is very close to the entrance to the main exhibition (in the North Hall).

Below is just a snippet of Liz's work.
