FRIDAY EVENTS 7 - 8.30pm 
 
POEMS - SHARED AND READ
January  22 2021
This is a space to think and talk about the place of poetry in our lives and the poems that move us.
Facilitated by Emma Stroker

'In this time when grief pours freezing over us,

When the hard light of pain gleams at every street corner,

When those who were pillars of that day's gold roof

Shrink in their clothes; surely from hunger

We may strike fire, like fire from flint?

And our strength is now the strength of our bones

Clean and equal like the shine from snow

And the strength of famine and of our enforced idleness

And it is the strength of our love for each other.'

 - Stephen Spender
