Poetry Reading Group

The Poetry Reading Group meet on the second Wednesday in every month 10.30-12.30. They have eleven members and the meetings are very informal and friendly.  Each month the group decides the subject for the next month, whether it be a particular poet or subject and then go away and either with the help of the internet or their own poetry books choose a poem which they will read out to the group at the next meeting.

Much discussion follows and it is surprising where the discussion goes!!!!

We would welcome new members but are limited to how many new people we can take as we meet in a members house. Anyone is welcome to come along to test the water and join us  with a cuppa and biscuit.

A Summer Morning

Never was sun so bright before,
No matin of the lark so sweet,
No grass so green beneath my feet,
Nor with such dewdrops jewelled o’er.

I stand with thee outside the door,
The air not yet is close with heat,
And far across the yellowing wheat
The waves are breaking on the shore.

A lovely day! Yet many such,
Each like to each, this month have passed,
And none did so supremely shine.
One thing they lacked: the perfect touch
Of thee–and thou art come at last,
And half this loveliness is thine.
