Kate’s “Brontë Stone” now part of the Yorkshire landscape!

Bronte Stone

Kate’s contribution to the Brontë Stones project is now available to see on one of four carved Brontë Stones in the Yorkshire landscape. Kate’s poem is inscribed on natural rock in the Ogden Kirk area of the Yorkshire moors. The letter carving was carried out by Pip Hall, and maps of the various walks to see the stones are now available at the parsonage in Haworth. 2018 marks 200 years since the birth of Emily Brontë and 40 years since the release of Kate’s single Wuthering Heights. Kate’s poem, dedicated to Emily Brontë, reads:

She stands outside
A book in her hands
“Her name is Cathy”, she says
“I have carried her so far, so far
Along the unmarked road from our graves
I cannot reach this window
Open it, I pray.”
But his window is a door to a lonely world
That longs to play.
Ah Emily. Come in, come in and stay.

Speaking earlier this year about the project (see our news item here), Kate said:

“I am delighted to be involved in this project. Each sister being remembered by a stone in the enigmatic landscape where they lived and worked is a striking idea. Emily only wrote the one novel – an extraordinary work of art that has truly left its mark. To be asked to write a piece for Emily’s stone is an honour and, in a way, a chance to say thank you to her.”

  6. I do love Kate Bush – my all time favourite female singer. And I love Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights…. So much so, I created a short film in the area of Haworth, the Brontë Falls and Top Withens.

    I run often on the moors and I’ve written a song ‘Past the Emily Stone’. I’d love to share it here. Is there a way I can post the audio file?
