Poetry for Pleasure Group/April Meeting 2018!

Poetry for Pleasure Group/An Tobar.

The theme for last Tuesday night's meeting was on "Pastimes" which made for an interesting evening with some people reading their own poems or contributions while others went for pieces from writers such as Seamus Heaney, Joyce Kilmer, Bernadette McCarrick and Brendan Kennelly. The poems read included, Blackberry Picking by Seamus Heaney, Pastimes by Willie G. Hodgins, The House With Nobody In It by Joyce Kilmer, Paperchase by Frank Murphy, Bread by Brendan Kennelly, The Joy of Quilting Groups by Leona Rennicks, Can I Sit With This by Marian Murphy, Walking the Land by Bernadette McCarrick, The Small Inconvenience by Willie G. Hodgins, In Honour of Heaney by Marian Murphy and A House In The Fields by Frank Murphy which had nothing to do with "Pastimes" but inspired by Sean Reilly's reading of The House With Nobody In It. Have to look up Mr Kilmer. The theme for next month's meeting is ~ Darkness and Light.
