Meets from 2-4pm on last Wednesday of the month
Venue: Group Leader’s house
One of the great advantages of belonging to this group is that it encourages us to read poetry on a regular basis.
At our monthly meetings, we choose a theme or poet to discuss and each member chooses two or three poems and photocopies them for all of the members to share. It is surprising how diverse the choices can be!
Recent choices have been – our choice of favourite poem; A. E. Houseman; themes of the countryside; maritime. We also listen to recordings e.g. Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas.
It is so easy to leave poetry behind in the fast pace of modern life and we look forward to meeting again soon.
