The Sobriety of My Youth
This week’s poem is Jenny Joseph’s “Warning” which I have chosen because it is light-hearted but carries a great message.
Not Cruel, Only Truthful
This week’s poem is Mirror, by Sylvia Plath, which I have chosen to mark my new friendship with Sam, who is exploring Plath’s poetry and finding it rather impenetrable.
No Country For Old Men
This week’s choice is Sailing to Byzantium by W.B. Yeats, a reflection on ageing.
