After a little rest for Easter Poetry with friends re-grouped today at Whitley Bay and it was lovely to have June back with us after having had to miss our meetings for a while. As usual we shared a rather good selection of poetry, with new member Jean making her first foray into reading to us all, which she managed with aplomb via Hugo Williams. Gail shared her news of the readiness of her book, which has been on the cards for a while but now is definite. What was strange was no mention of the forthcoming election, perhaps we needed a rest from it.
The poems we shared this week were:
Gail Curry – Sky Poem
Peter Mortimer – Read a book every day
John Constantine – Don’t jump off the roof dad
John Mills – Climbing is for cissies
Felix Dennis – April 15th 2007
