Trying to decide on which piece of poetry should I choose for Oct 2nd, National Poetry Day. It’s been a lovely excuse to browse through some of my favourite poetry books . But then I realised I might have copyright issues with many of them, so I can’t choose Carol Ann Duffy , or Wendy Cope or even the late lamented U A Fanthorpe (although her poem ‘Atlas’ is a wonderfully original view of love). And as perceptive and clever as they are, I ‘m trying not to pick one of Shakespeare’s sonnets .
So still musing, but the mist is lifting.
