Our Meeting on March 24th 2015

This was the last meeting before Easter and the theme was ‘Heavens Above’ which prompted poems on planets, stars, clouds, night and heaven itself. Wordsworth and Gerard Manley Hopkins were well-represented, as was William Blake and we were treated to spirited readings of ‘Twinkle, twinkle Little Star’ and John Agard’s ‘Coffee In Heaven.’ Other poets visited were Maura Dooley, Penelope Shuttle. Anne Stewart and Daphne Cloag with an extract from her poem ‘Beginnings’ A poem was read from Simon Armitage’s ‘Cloud Cuckoo Land’ one of 88 poems which receives its title from a constellation. We look forward to recommencing our activities on April 28th.
