Meeting on Sept. 22nd. European Poetry

A special welcome to Sally Grace who joined us today as a visitor. Those who attended today’s meeting came with a variety of poems, all different and all from the continent of Europe, read in translation. Two of our members chose to read poems by Phillipe Jacotett and among the other offerings there were poems by Baudelaire, Cavafy, Hermann Hesse, Victor Hugo, Pope Jean Paul, the contemporary Romanian poet Lucian Vasilescu and Sissal Kampmann from the Faroe Islands. It was an enjoyable mix and an inducement for us to read more European poetry.
