Poems, animal info, extraordinary women, my books!

National Poetry Day Film, Snow Geese Solstice

Film six in the series of National Poetry Day films made by Peter Brownlee and me.

People whose ways of life or jobs are connected with light read poems incorporating light – today, an actress in the ‘spotlight’, Slavka Liskova, reads Snow Geese Solstice by Susan Richardson.

Thank you to Susan Richardson for use of this beautiful poem, to Slavka Liskova for her wonderful reading, and Holly Newton at the Alma Tavern Theatre, Bristol for use of their stage!

    This was wonderful and one must listen to it more than once to truly understand all of it.
