Meeting of Dec. 12th.
The theme of the meeting was ‘A Memorable Day’ and the special Christmas refreshments were as usual provided by Lesley Mcletchie.
Christmas, in fact, was the theme for a few of the poems . There was ‘Christmas’ both by John Betjeman and Maureen McManus, ‘Carol Of The Brown King’ by Langston Hughes, ‘Keeping Christmas’ Eleanor Farjeon and TS Eliot’s ‘Journey Of The Magi, but there were surprises such as Leigh Hunt’s ‘ Jenny Kissed Me’ and ‘Seeing A Kingfisher’ by Myra Schneider. Among the eighteen who attended everyone had found something in keeping with the theme with no duplication.
This was the last meeting before Christmas and we make a return on Tuesday January 9th. when members will have an open choice.
