National Poetry Day!
Today is National Poetry Day (I may have mentioned this once or twice, before!).
The theme is ‘Remember’ – and Peter my editor husband and I have made a film of animal poetry readings by well-known poets, called ‘Remember the Animals’.
Today I went to QEH school in Bristol to read poems about animals and workshop, after Peter and I visited the square where the film was being shown.
When we got there there was a party of primary school children watching, while having lunch in the sunshine.
As I was talking to Peter, the teacher came over and said the children had spotted me and asked if I was the lady in the video, and if I was, could they talk to me?
So I went over – and they told me they liked ‘Chameleon’, Dolphin’ and ‘Rhino’
Apparently the bigger you are shown on screen the cooler it is and the more you famous you appear, and I had sign autographs. LOL!
