Henry Marsh began writing poetry in 2000 following the death of a friend, a Gaelic Bard, Donald MacDonald of South Lochboisdale. He has since published a number of collections, most recently The Bedrock: Poems on Themes from the Great Tapestry of Scotland (Maclean Dubois, 2015) and A Voyage to Babylon (Maclean Dubois, 2013). All his collections include poetry reflecting his love of the Hebrides, its landscapes, its flora and fauna, its history and its people. Recently, the bulk of his work has concerned themes from Scottish history associated with John Knox, Mary, Queen of Scots, and the Covenanters. Marsh has also done work on Australian landscapes and aboriginal themes in support of the paintings of Kym Needle for his exhibition catalogues.
