Archant

Seaton shop front becomes a giant version of Walter de la Mare’s celebrated poem “Silver”.

Several shops in Seaton displayed popular verses in their windows to mark national poetry day on Thursday.

But Daniel Bailey, of Daniel-Alexander Interiors, went one better.

He painted the whole of Walter de la Mare’s poem “Silver” across his shop’s frontage, continuing it along a side window.
