Poetry

World Poetry day

I very nearly missed it completely, but I’ll be sure that it’s in my diary for next year at the very least. I’m not even sure that I knew that there was a world poetry day, but now I do. So what am I going to do about it? Well at the very least I’m going to try to read some poetry today, as I haven’t done that for a long time.

Talking rubbish

Sentiment

A thought, an impression.

The Poetry Library

I spent a very pleasant hour recently in the Poetry Library at the Southbank centre. I’ve been a member of the Poetry Library almost since it first opened, and it is truly a national treasure.

It is such a peaceful place, such a great place to sit and read poetry (of course) and discover new writing.

When I worked full time in London I used to make a lot more use of it, but now I only get to pop in every now and then. Even so, it is a joy to visit it every now and then. I hope to get to use it more.
