Susan Richardson‘s beautiful poem was recorded for National Poetry Day 2015, when the theme was light. Susan Richardson’s work celebrates and defends animals and wild places. She has a new book out – Words the Turtle Taught me, available here. Slavka Liskova is an actor. Filmed by Peter Brownlee, Chew Valley Films.
Gerard Benson was a wonderful poet (and friend). His excellent books can be bought here. Here he is in about 2012, reading his poem The Cat and the Pig.
Well, time for another poetry video, I think. This one is by Roger Stevens – with an animation by Ron Bookless AND a song! What more could you ask. Roger is not only a children’s poet, but talented musician as well. This poem is from his book Low Flying Rabbits Ahead, Macmillan.
