Welcome to a blog from Surrey Libraries in the UK.
“Poetry, literature that evokes a concentrated imaginative awareness of experience or a specific emotional response through language chosen and arranged for its meaning, sound, and rhythm.”
The blog was officially launched via Twitter and Facebook to celebrate National Poetry Day on Thursday 2nd October 2014. The theme for National Poetry Day 2014 was REMEMBER.
The 21st National Poetry Day took place on Thursday 8th October 2015 and had the theme LIGHT.
We hope you will revisit the blog, discover a new poem or an old favourite, or ignite an interest in the pleasure and emotion that can be expressed and felt by poetry.
Find out more about World Poetry Day too. 21st March every year.
Thank you for your visit.
