Poetry Group with John Enos
With this self-isolation, I lost track of time - forgot we were due to meet yesterday and I wanted to at least mark the occasion. Still, better late than never! I hope you are all keeping well and 'busy' at this stressful time.
Assuming you're missing your monthly 'fix' of verse, I've dug out a few Limericks that might brighten your day.
There was a young lady from Natchez
Whose clothing was always in patchez.
When questions arose
On the state of her clothes,
She drawled, 'Where I itches, I scratchez!
There was a young man from Darjeeling
Who got on a bus bound for Ealing.
A sign by the door
Said, 'Don't spit on the floor.'
So he carefully spat on the ceiling.
There was a young lady at Crewe
Who wanted to catch the 2.02.
Said a porter, 'Don't worry,
Or hurry, or scurry.
It's a minute or two to 2.02.'
Three more from Bryn:
Just stick to the lock-down says Joyce
There’s a lot over which to rejoice
Some prose can be fun
Or poetry, well done
We really have such a good choice.
U3A men who live in Bridgend
Wish the lock-down would very soon end
They try to keep calm
And not do any harm
But they’re driving their wives round the bend!
And one from the Chairman:
When I send a message to Pam
She tells me it goes into spam
She don’t get my text
Or what I send next
Oh, how frustrated I am

Every 2nd. Wednesday from 2pm to 4pm at Giliad Chapel Hall. Coity.
Since I became convenor of the Poetry Group in October, 2018, we've led a vagrant life searching for the ideal venue. We've met at Brackla Community Centre, Bryn & Edith's house, Wildmill Centre, back to Brackla and finally to our present venue: Gilead Hall in Coity.
We meet , 2.00 till 4.00 the second Wednesday of each month.
Membership has fluctuated over the year; on a good day we make double figures (just). Why not JOIN US?
Meetings consist of members introducing and reading poems they have chosen on a pre- arranged subject, which is usually given a thorough general discussion in the process.
If you have lost touch with poetry and would like to give it a try again, we'd be happy to welcome you. You needn't feel obliged to read; you can come as a spectator, but, should you wish to contribute, it's worth getting hold of a modern general anthology. (Cheap copies on Amazon.)
