Poetry Breakfast ~ at home
As we are unable to meet together for our Poetry Breakfasts, I invite you to join us for a virtual session instead. So, with the help of Tim, Ali and Hilary, I will share ideas for poems, on the theme of each Poetry Breakfast already on our (now redundant) calendar, on a weekly basis.
So the first one we missed should have been at Aardvark Books on the theme of Daffodils! Please add your ideas for poems into the comments box below. If you can’t find online versions to share, just tell us where you found your poem so we can look them up. Feel free to comment on any of the poems, or just simply add your own suggestions.
Sending you all much love!
PS The next theme will be ‘Poetry’
The poem I always think of first when daffodils are mentioned, is, of course, that most famous one of all The Daffodils by William Wordsworth. Clare Shaw, a lovely poet from Todmorden, has done a fabulous reading of The Daffodils on Facebook and she very kindly sent me the link.
And for me The Daffodils is always followed now by Gillian Clarke’s moving and wonderful poem Miracle on St David’s Day
I also like Home Pictures in May by John Clare from Selected Poems by John Clare.
For a bit of fun, Daffodowndilly by A A Milne is lovely, thank you Hilary for choosing this one.
Now over to you – suggestions please! (Don’t worry about finding the links to online versions, I’ll do that for you if you don’t have the information, just title and poet is fine.)
(yes this is still the right email!)
Keep in touch!
