Hello Poetry Lovers
I can’t tell you how much I’m enjoying the Sealey Challenge.
For the unenlightened, one has to read a poetry pamphlet every day for 31 days of August. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, not the easy feat it first sounded. Not to mention running out of books!
However, August is flying by alarmingly quickly and I seem to be on the case so far!
Oh yes, Dobby and Fish have got in on the action, and have read one or two. Dobby has particularly taken to Ogden Nash, that witty American poet.
So far, I have loved and read Greg Freeman, Rodney Wood (twice), Hannah Stanislaus, Barbara Brownskirt, Pratibha Castle, to name but many…
I also thought it would be nice to feature some children’s poetry this time. Such a delight to read.
As I said, Dobby, Fish and I had to go to the library to replenish my feeble collection of pamphlets
After an emotional kerfuffle, I selected these books
Us three look forward to tackling these, particularly Clive James, a much missed clever writer.
So stay tuned, PL’s and fingers crossed that I (and Dobby and Fish) get through the remainder of August with this wonderful and exacting task.
We’ll keep you posted!
