Girl with a guitar: words for music is a set of seven short poems taken, with the poet’s kind permission, from Ruth Dallas – collected poems (Otago University Press, 2000). It was initially published in her 1968 collection, Shadow Show. The first performance was given by Panache, as part of a celebration of Ruth Dallas’s poetry, in a multi-media production, ‘Like flowers in rain’. The subject matter, drawing largely on nature images, is reflected in the titles.
