We meet on the fourth Tuesday afternoons when we discuss all things poetic Ė poets, types of poem, themes, interpretations,  explicit or hidden meanings, etc. including, of course, wherever our ideas and discussions take us.  Itís amazing how one personís regard for a particular poet can raise general enthusiasm and then we may find out how interesting indeed is that hitherto unregarded subject.

I am very pleased to announce that a second Poetry Group was launched in January in response to members' interest.
We all agreed that working from a general anthology provided a useful starting point for a newly established group because this gave the opportunity to explore poems by a variety of authors.
Following discussion, we chose to use the anthology entitled "Poem For The Day" Volume 1, Edited by Wendy Cope, for our next meeting on 22nd February; we agreed that each of us would bring a copy of the book. Everyone said how much they had enjoyed the session: meeting new people and being introduced to poets and poems that were new to them. There are still some vacancies so if anyone is interested in joining us at our meeting on 22nd February, do please contact me.
