About

The text of this piece is the simple story of the thoughts of an astronaut as he prepares to head off into outer space. He seems happy to be heading off and leaving all behind him: 'you needn’t think I’ll give a damn for you or what you are'.

English poet Norman Nicholson (1914-1987) was not associated with any particular poetic movement of the twentieth century, and his work is noted for its simplicity of language and concern with matters of everyday life. Much of his poetry focussed on the mining and quarrying industries of the are in which he lived, and also religion and faith.
