Kingsbridge Estuary

Poetry Appreciation

The group meets once a month on a Wednesday morning (now 10.30am - 12.30pm) at a member's house in Kingsbridge. At each meeting a theme and date for the next meeting are agreed. Sometimes we fix these for two meetings ahead.

At the meeting, everyone comes with poetry related in some way to the theme. They read it to us and we can comment on it and discuss it.

Themes we have covered include Seasonal Poems, War Poetry, The Sea, The Countryside, Ghosts and Spooky things, Haikus, Fireworks, Animals, Birds, Love, Food, Music, Gardens, Endings, Poets from particular periods, Poets previously unknown to us, Poets that are not English or American (and vice versa) and many other subjects. The possibilities are endless. Sometimes we are very serious and sometimes we are helpless with laughter.

At the moment we have 10 members and we have agreed this is the maximum for the group to make it work to our mutual satisfaction. There is currently a Waiting List.

The next meeting will be on Wednesday 5th June and the plan then is just to bring 3 poems each of our own choice. Anything you like!
