Malcolm is a poet and one must say, a bit of an actor in his ability of reciting poetry in a way that makes you stop, pause and beg for more.   He lives in Cambridge and speaks at the C.S. Lewis retreat in Navasota, Texas.   His talents do not stop there. He is a songwriter and has a new CD called Green Man, which can be purchased from his website.

I’m the Green Man, don’t take my name in vain

I’m the Green Man, and its time to break my chain

If you cut me down I’ll spring back green again

Malcom Guite's Green Man Album. The Album can be purchased from Malcolm's Website.

An incredible book by Malcolm Guite.
