Poem of the Month

This month’s poem, Patinage, is another piece of writing included in “Off the Wall” – the group’s anthology published last year and still available from Somewhere Else Café Bar at 65 Castle Street.

Linda Dyson has led a varied life in several countries, and has been writing since she was seven, when she composed her first poem – about hollyhocks – and by the age of nine she wrote the beginning of a novel in an exercise book. She says she hasn’t stopped writing ever since!

It may be warm this month, but Linda’s poem will transport you to the cool of the ice skating rink, and we hope you will find the descriptions it presents will fill your mind’s eye with refreshing and graceful images as we look forward to an English summer.

    1. Yes please to coming to read some of your work. How about the 12th or 19th of June ?
      We meet at Beech Grove Court, Queen Anne’s Road, GL7 1BD. To enter the building press TRADE. I am on 07519 061003 if any problems on the day.
      We are a range of ages so whatever you think would appeal to a wider audience. If you could start around 10.15.
