Stationers’ Poetry Book Society Weekly Poem - Number 1

23 APRIL 2020

Recalling the previous collaboration between Stationers and the Poetry Book Society who partnered together in No-one is an Island (the poetry and music night last year at St Martin within Ludgate) Liveryman Ian Grant and the Poetry Book Society are going to contribute a poem each week of the lockdown to soothe, cheer and give food for thought.  Here is their first suggestion.  It appears on Thursday 23 April when at 8.00 pm there will be another "clapping" for the NHS and other keyworkers.

This poem also appears in the Members Only area of the site and Stationers should look out for news of a special offer from the Poetry Book Society later in the series.
