The Milford Poetry Group meets on the first Tuesday of the month at St John’s Church Hall, Milford from 2.00 to 4.00pm.

We learn about the life and works of a different poet each month, exploring their poetry and discussing the various influences on their style of writing. At the October meeting we brought together, various poems connected to the season of autumn and looked at the life of Keats and we discussed his renowned poem ‘Ode to Autumn’.
In November, the works of poet U.A. Fanthorpe was enjoyed by the members and in December we will be listening to recordings of John Betjeman and reading a selection of his poems. Some of the names for 2022 include Seamus Heaney, Stevie Smith, Philip Larkin and John Donne.
We are essentially a group of people who enjoy learning about poets and reading poetry. The group is open to anyone who likes to explore the diversity of the English language. We currently have ten members and we would very much welcome anyone new who is interested in words and verse, poets and their lives and works.

If you think you would enjoy joining our small literary group, we would be delighted to welcome you. For further information please contact Pauline, the group leader on 01483 810731.
