Day 4: Poetry

“So far, 2020 has been a year that none of us could have imagined or knew what would have been in store. What we do know is that literature, and in particular poetry, can help us deal with difficult situations, be they personal to ourselves or felt on a wider scale, providing comfort, reassurance, solace, a chance to reflect, laugh, cry and share in the spectrum of human emotion.” The Reader. 2020.

With this in mind, please find links to our library poetry resources, listed below, along with links to external sites where you can access podcasts, live poetry readings, Haikus and soaring sonnets.
