It was a good meeting of the Mitchell Poetry Group this month. We asked everyone to bring along a poem and we picked two of them to discuss, both American as it happened: The Simple Truth by Philip Levine and Introduction to Poetry by Billy Collins. The latter is about appreciating a poem without over analysing it – we all loved it,so thanks to Veronica for finding it.
We meet once a month on level 5 of the Mitchell, 6-7pm, to talk about two poems – and we never tie the poem to a chair with rope and torture a confession out of it…..
Next meeting May 3rd.
