A slab inscribed with poignant lines from a poem by Ted Hughes, uniting in one stone his love of poetry, fishing, and his adopted county, Devon, is to be dedicated in Poets' Corner at Westminster Abbey.

The lines from his poem That Morning recall a day when he stood deep in an Alaskan stream as a shoal of salmon flickered by: "So we found the end of our journey, So we stood alive in the river of light, Among the creatures of light, creatures of light".

The poet laureate died in 1998, one of the most critically admired and popular poets of the 20th century. Members of his family including his widow, Carol, and Frieda, his daughter with Sylvia Plath, will join friends and fellow poets including the Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney, former poet laureate Sir Andrew Motion, Simon Armitage and Blake Morrison, authors Michael Morpurgo and Graham Swift, and others from the arts world.
