National Poetry Day Films, Battling Fire
Film number SEVEN in the series of National Poetry Day films where people whose ways of life or jobs are connected with light read poems incorporating light.
Today’s poem is a rather exciting – Paul Cornelius, fire fighter for Avon Fire and Rescue, reads Battling Fire by Mary E. Cronin, from her future collection for children, Trucks, Boots and Bells.
We were thrilled to have a fire fighter read for us!
Thank you Mary E. Cronin for use of the poem, to Paul Cornelius for his fabulous reading, and to Avon Fire and Rescue for their help.
