Did anyone else mark this day in any way or enjoy poetry on the radio?
At lunch time in a small cafe a dozen of us read poems of our choice for an hour. We do this each week, the size of the group, the people who come and the poetry we share all varies from week to week.
In the evening I heard impressive poets at Birmingham Literature Festival. The outgoing and incoming Poets Laureate shared their work first. Then a former PL, Roy McFarlane, and Jean 'Binta' Breeze read their own work. Both were remarkable for their honesty, genuine emotion, and sharing of common experience. An unforgettable evening.
