Poetry Group

W H Auden

The Saint Martin’s Poetry Group meets once monthly to read and discuss poems of our choosing, as well as to share poems composed by group members. Notice of interest should be communicated to the rector, so he can add your name to the email list, which we use to inform those interested going forward. We choose our meeting date for the next month at each meeting, then publicize it. Our members have a wide range of interests, which we encourage, including the texts of hymns and anthems used in worship.

 Poems will be read and discussed, as suggested at our previous meetings. The reading list will include a variety of writers, including in the next months: the likes of W H Auden, Mary Oliver, Wendell Berry, Emily Dickinson and others.
