Her poetry is carefully wrought often combining rich and detailed imagery with thematic indirectness. In my opinion, Bishop is...

She wonders who provides the order or domestic touches in the station because there isn’t a motherly touch in the station...

whos is responsible

culminated in Henry's young son being crowned not by the archbishop but by the archbishop of York and the bishops of London and Salisbury.
