Ilkeston Readers' Group

Yesterday I was in Ilkeston at the invitation of the Readers' Group: a most enjoyable afternoon discussing poetry. I read a sequence about my father as well as some 'laureate' poems, and interspersed them with 'companion' poems by other writers, including Those Winter Sundays by Robert Hayden.

Thanks to all the members for thought-provoking questions, and for sharing insights and experiences.
