Poetry for Pleasure

Welcome to our Poetry page!

We meet for the sheer pleasure of sharing our love of the English language in the form of poetry - poetry that links human experience across the world and through time.

We read and explore selected themes, individual poets or specific poems, styles or forms.

"A poem is an arrangement of words containing possibilities."  The Enthusiast-2007

We discuss the possibilities when we meet at 10am on the last Friday of the month at members' homes.
