We have been running now for more than 20 years although different people have come and gone. We are a group of poetry lovers who enjoy listening to and reading poetry. Each month we chose a theme, or sometimes a poet, for the following month and the result is nearly always something new to somebody. Occasionally one of the group reads a poem he or she has written. It is very light hearted and we welcome new comers.
The group meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month in the afternoon.
U3A members are we
From Group Poetry B
And we meet once a month, don't you see
From Pam Ayres to John Donne
We have plenty of fun
Lots of poems, discussions and tea.
Limmericks and sonnets,
Dirges and verse,
Shakespeare, elegies, doggerel or worse.
Kipling and Keats, and Wendy Cope too
Lots of them known, but some of them new,
All are welcome so come along DO.
