Thetford

Poetry

Despite the current 'Social Distancing' Poetry group continues to run - by email.
We're finding poems to share that make the days more interesting, thought provoking and to make us laugh.
Mostly we find poems that fit around a chosen theme, often not!
Occasionally members feel inspired to write their own verse,.
All contributions are gratefully received

The current topic is : Lockdown Lethargy//Kindness & Community

We usually meet at 10.00 a.m.on the 3rd Wednesday of the month in Priory Park, Thetford.
We bring poems to read, share & discuss with the group.
We usually have a theme but always bring other poems just because we like them.

Hope - Emily Dickinson
“Hope” is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -

And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -

I’ve heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me.

Hope to see you soon, Gil :)
