How are you celebrating National Poetry Day this year? This year’s theme is LIGHT.
Search the web & you’ll come up with hundreds of events local and national.
I’ll be marking the day by finishing my ‘Wordsworth’ study, working on my own poem on the ‘light’ theme (maybe for my National Poetry Competition entry) and reading Poetry Notebook by Clive James – heartily recommended for anyone with an interest in the subject. As with all Clive James books you can hear that distinct voice that’s entertained us for decades. If I can make it, I’ll also be attending local events to mark the day.
Today would be a good day to wish Clive all the very best and a thousand thanks for giving us such pleasure.
