An Tobar/Poetry for Pleasure ~ March 2018!

An Tobar/Poetry for Pleasure/Ardbraccan, Navan.

The theme for last Tuesday night's meeting was either satire or romance and just about everyone managed a poem or two that was either one or both. Some of the more interesting included Thomas De Quincey's, On Murder Considered as one of the Fine Arts, first published in 1827 and Willie G. Hodgins', Romance with a Difference.  She Walks in Beauty by Lord Byron was very well read by Sean Reilly and if I remember correctly he did a take on Julie Andrews', My Favourite Things. All had interesting stories attached. Other pieces read included, Song of Wandering Aengus by W. B. Yeats, Base Details by Siegfried Sassoon, The Hospital by Patrick Kavanagh, and also his poems, Come Dance With Kitty Stobling and Consider The Grass Growing, so he was the most popular on the night. Myself I read, A Knight's Tale and A House of Cards and Lines Written in Early Spring by William Wordsworth also got a reading. The theme for the next meeting in April is, Pastimes.
