Poetry for Pleasure
We cover all aspects of Poetry and the schedule is very wide-ranging, from Emily Dickinson and Elizabethan Poetry, to the Lakeland poets and Curious and Comical Verse. We are not a “high-brow” group, just a bunch of people who enjoy reading poetry and have many laughs along the way.
The group meets on the 1st Monday of the month at 2pm, at the convenor’s home.
Unfortunately meetings have been cancelled until further notice
Convenor: Sheila Gravells : Phone: 01522 826893
A poem for now
Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
BY A. E. HOUSMAN
Loveliest of trees, the cherry nowIs hung with bloom along the bough,And stands about the woodland rideWearing white for Eastertide.Now, of my threescore years and ten,Twenty will not come again,And take from seventy springs a score,It only leaves me fifty more.And since to look at things in bloomFifty springs are little room,About the woodlands I will goTo see the cherry hung with snow.
