Sunday afternoon ramble

I started with the Aldeburgh Poetry Festival Blog.

Moved on to The Writers' Studio of New York. What an amazing reading list! Can you imagine how much reading there is to get through each and every week? How can anyone afford to buy so many books? Would they be in the library? Or even all on Kindle?

Back to the poet Ingrid De Kok. This poem (The archbishop chairs the first session) is one of a set of 10 concerning the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's work in South Africa. They are all in her collection called Terrestial Things.

Then I stopped a while at poet Ko Un. I am struck by the concept of writing one poem for each person he has met in his life.
