Like most people who have ever listened to Desert Island Discs I have collected and changed my selection many times over. A few constants have been Gerry Rafferty’s Baker Street, Pie Jesu from Faure’s Requiem and the aria Ebben? Ne andrĂ² lontana from Catalini’s La Wally.

I, also, always have a spoken word track which got me to thinking today what would be my Desert Island Poems. Today they are:

1. Dart by Alice Oswald

2. The Four Quartets by TS Eliot

3. The Whitsun Weddings by Philip Larkin

4. The Wasteland by TS Eliot

5. A Treatise of Civil Power by Geoffrey Hill

6. Teach Yourself Mapmaking by Jane Routh

7. A Sea Chantey by Derek Walcott

8. Turning into Whitby by Sarah Hymas
