Herbs, SpiceHerbs and Colour.
Far from choosing the easy option of reading poems about or referencing colour, there were some interesting choices on the other two topics. Ann Barlow read from ‘The Song of Solomon’, Lesley Mc`Letchie read Les Murray’s ‘Vindaloo In Merthyr Tidfyl’ and Paula Piggott gave us ‘Mistress Of Spices’ by Nashu Mathur.
There was also Nola Turner’s contribution of ‘Camomile Tea’ by Kathleen Mansfield while Anne Stewart read from ‘The Odyssey’. In all there were 16 poems about colour and 14 about herbs, spices or both.
