Poems, animal info, extraordinary women, my books!

Today is National Poetry Day!

It’s National Poetry Day today! The theme is LIGHT!

As regular readers will know, I have been filming, with the help of my film-editor husband Pete, people whose jobs or ways of life are connected with light, reading poems about light.

This is the final film – a mash of people with jobs to do with light all reading the same poem, George, Lord Byron’s She Walks in Beauty.

 

Thanks to, in order of appearance:

Dr Furqaan Yusaf, Teaching Fellow, Junior Researcher in Cosmology, Physics Dept., Bristol University;

Rev. Lee Barnes, Vicar of Saint Stephen’s ad Holy Trinity, Bristol;

Stuart Lees, of the John Sebastian Lightship, Cabot Cruising Club, Bristol;

Paul Cornelius, Firefighter, Avon Fire and Rescue, Bristol;

Vaishnavi Pikka Brassey, Hindu performer, Bristol;

Eleanor Trapp, Partner, John Lewis Lighting Department, Bristol;

Ewan Dunford, Projectionist, Watershed, Bristol.

 

And thanks to all the other participants in all of the films for your generous support of National Poetry Day.

Don’t forget to come and see me in Waterstones, Broadmead, Bristol today, come and play on the GINORMOUS magnetic poetry, write a few words, put them on the Bunting Beams of Light Poems and help us get as far round the shop as possible!
