Wombwell Ongoing Book Interviews: “The Green Man” by Dr. David Russell Mosley. Question 1:

the green man by David Russell Mosley

-Dr. David Russell Mosley

is a poet and theologian living in Washington state. When he’s not teaching or writing, David enjoys getting lost in the woods, drinking a nice scotch, and smoking a pipe. His debut book of poetry, The Green Man, is out now with Resource Publications.

Q.1. How did you decide on the order of the poems in your book?

I knew early on that I wanted to organize my poems around the 4 seasons. But even there, I had to think about what season I wanted to start with, which would control which one I ended with. So, I decided to start with Autumn so I could end in Summer. From there, I added the other three sections, Creation, Fall, and Saints and Other Songs of the Church. I also knew I wanted to end with a poem I thought would tie up the whole collection, which is why the final poem is “The Holy Grail.”
