Wimbledon poet laureate Matt Harvey has been thinking about those grass courts and writing about it. Here’s an excerpt from his latest verse. Read the rest at the Poetry Trust website, where you can also listen to Harvey read the poem.

more than a lawn

it’s a lawn – just a lawn
but it’s more than a lawn

it’s a dance floor, a war zone, a platform, a stage
showcase, coliseum, a ring, a fight cage
