Rowan Williams poem on organ donation

The former archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, has added his voice to a campaign for organ donation. In a 19-line poem”Host Organism”, described on the Guardian website,  Williams – now master of Magdalene College, Cambridge – takes an oblique line on transplants, imagining surgeons as gardeners and donors as “unnamed birds”. The poem is intended to assist National Transplant Week, running until 14 July.
