I’ve been away for a few weeks and it was so good to be back at our meeting yesterday. A great discussion on the topic of Translation with some interesting contributions.
Theme for next week: Bullying
Theme for the following week: We are not alone.
I read a sonnet I’d written about a recent trip.
We’ve come to Stratford for a day or two
(by way of Chester’s nice Cathedral caff);
the Travelodge supplying bed and loo
and prebooked tickets saving us from faff.
We first see Aphra Benn’s The Rover. GOD!!!
I love the woman! play and all.
Us older ones admire and clap and nod
but young things whoop with joy and feel lust’s call.
And so tonight: Two Noble Kindsmen. Hmm
There’s gods and honour, battles, love and gore.
I like the words but miss the sense of them
and, at the end, polite applause – no more.
Hey ho, it’s over; time to leave this place.
We two are back to Rhos-On-Sea’s embrace.
