National Poetry Day, Nightingale.
Only two days to go until National Poetry Day!!!
Poem number 14, in this series of poems incorporating light, read by people whose ways of life or jobs are connected with light, is written by me.
It is read by wildlife cameraman and producer Matt Brierley, and is a poem about the nightingale.
This bird, famous for its glorious song, sung at night, is in serious decline. Its population has fallen by a staggering 90% in the last 40 years, mainly due to loss of habitat .
I love writing about birds.
Thank you to Matt Brierley for the lovely reading.

Beautiful poem, Liz, and he reads it so well. I love his accent, which reminds me of the Derbyshire voices I heard over the weekend.
Isn’t it a lovely accent?
It is and definitely one of my favourite poems, it’s the miles and miles of silver inside the bird, love that image.
Thank you, Sue! xxxxx
