A Folly of Poets…

Here are the out-takes and boo-boos and some of the fun takes from a group of children’s poets who met earlier in the year to make some poetry films and do a poetry performance…

I give you, A FOLLY OF POETS, Ed Boxall, Liz Brownlee, Jan Dean, John Dougherty, Sue Hardy-Dawson, Trevor Millum, Eric Ode, Andrea Shavick, Roger Stevens, Philip Waddell, Celia Warren, and Bernard Young.

All the above poets have websites where the actual poem performance might or might not appear… but I can tell you, mine, Back in the Future, is on my site, here!

Paul Cornelius, Fire Fighter, Reads Battling Fire by Mary E Cronin

As it’s so HOT, and there have been lots of fires breaking out, here is a poem read by fire-fighter Paul Cornelius by Mary E Cronin, filmed as part of National Poetry Day 2015’s theme, Light. 15 people whose jobs or ways of life were associated with light read poems that incorporated light.
