Love on the Marsh, a long poem in 100 stanzas, is described by Lochhead as "an extension of High Marsh Road" and "brother and sister to it". The diary-like entries, a form to which Lochhead has frequently returned over the years, can also be compared to his work in The Panic Field. By turns earthy and ethereal, a pilgrimage through a landscape of grass and sky and tumultuous emotions, Love on the Marsh revisits the High Marsh Road with a new eye and finds in it the self-examining, self-discovering heart.

is every day a sentimental journey?
what does the road say? questions
lie along the fence. answers fly
as crows on the changing winds.
out there.
