Apologies for the delay in posting this.
There were some new members and unusually nearly everyone reading brought poetry along! As usual there was some good conversation and discussion.
The pieces read included:
- Charles Causley‘s Ten Types of Hospital Visitor and At The Grave Of John Clare
- Wendy Cope‘s Mr Strugnell
- Pam Ayres‘ Oh I Wish I Looked After Me Teeth
- John Betjeman‘s The Town Clerks View
- W B Yeats‘ Song of the Wandering Aengus
- Robert Piroch’s letter I Like Words from Sean Usher‘s Letters of Note
- W B Yeats’ An Irish Airman Forsees His Death
The next meeting of the group is at 11am on January 26th 2017 at Newcastle-under-Lyme Library. All are most welcome to come and read anything they choose or listen to others.
