.
The group continues in the current format. Each month a member chooses a poet and researches their life and work to share with the group. Each member finds a poem by said poet and reads this to the group who then discuss it. This format is working very well and enables all to be fully involved.

-----POET FOR March -Matthew Arnold (24 December 1822 – 15 April 1888)
He was an English poet and cultural critic who worked as an inspector of schools.
He was the son of Thomas Arnold, the famed headmaster of Rugby School,
He is sometimes called the third great Victorian poet, along with Alfred, Lord Tennyson and Robert Browning.
.

" "Dover Beach".
Glory be to God for dappled things —
For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;
For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;
Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches' wings;
Landscape plotted and pieced — fold, fallow, and plough;
And áll trádes, their gear and tackle and trim.
All things counter, original, spare, strange;
Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)
With swift, slow; sweet, sour; a dazzle, dim;
He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change:
Praise him.

Why not come along and join us.
