A cold, wet, windy weekend in store so what better excuse to settle down with some yarn, a good book, radio on one side, shelties on the other. The lentil Hashis Parmentier in the slow cooker.
One of the programmes I am looking forward to this weekend is Poetry Extra on radio 4 extra tomorrow afternoon. I don’t read much poetry but there are 5 poets who I do read and re-read constantly – John Clare, Edward Thomas, Adam Thorpe, Ivor Gurney and Norman Nicholson. If you know these poets you can probably see a common theme.
Here is Coastal Journey, taken from Norman Nicholson’s Collected Poems.
