'we share in Basil Brown's suspense...'
words from: Shepherd’s Hut, Sutton Hoo (C.G.)
Our friends at NT Sutton Hoo, guarding the mounds
Today is UNESCO World Poetry Day...
...and here in Suffolk we are celebrating with an event at the university. Writers from Poetry Wivenhoe will be joining us and presenting their poems on 'the natural world' in the first half. David will be giving a welcome at the start. Do come and join us if you are within range.
The East Anglian Daily Times/Eastern Daily Press ran a poetry supplement on Saturday to mark this auspicious day. My Sutton Hoo sonnet was included alongside poems about Norfolk and Suffolk by poets 'old' (Wordsworth, Crabbe...) and 'new'.
