The poem signs are made from deconstructions of Wordsworth poetry and poems written by Conneally and people from the communities of North West Leicestershire where William Wordsworth and his family lived and worked between 1806 and 1807 at Coleorton.
The signs form part of a curated tour / walk and interactive map based around places associated with William Wordsworth and his family in North West Leicestershire starting and ending at Snibston Discovery Museum, Coalville, Leicestershire.

one upright arm sustains the cheek come walk with me

Is a fragment from “HOW RICH THAT FOREHEAD’S CALM EXPANSE” by William Wordsworth. Wordsworth tells us that the poem HOW RICH THAT FOREHEAD’S CALM EXPANSE was inspired by a print at Coleorton Hall, North West Leicestershire. Mrs Wordsworth’s impression was that HOW RICH THAT FOREHEAD’S CALM EXPANSE was also written at Coleorton Hall despite William’s note that it was written at Rydal Mount in the Lake District.
