Sinead O’Connor, Bjork and Sir David Attenborough popped up in conversation at yesterday’s Poetry with Friends at Whitley Bay Library.

We had lively debate encrusted with fantastic poems delivered beautifully. Highlights for me were newcomer Jeff/Geoff’s amazing poem about penguins, Joyce’s reading of A Policeman’s Lot by Wendy Cope  and Elizabeth’s astonishing rendition of Eliot’s The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock.

APTENODYTES FORSTERI

We also enjoyed poems by Amy Lowell, Josephine Scott, Shakespeare, Robert Browning, Kathleen Raine and others.
