Although I don't write poetry, I do appreciate some of the modern poets. Earlier this year I met Seamus Heaney at King's Place in London and a few others who appeared at the Essex Book Festival this March. Many were at Chelsea Flower Show last month herre I saw Roger McGough, the Liverpool poet.. Loved his red trousers and counted at least another dozen men also sporting red trousers - quite the thing in London at present. Fashion is a strange animal. By the way, Roger's distinctive voice can be heard in so many TV voice-over commercials these days. So here's my snap of Roger.in his scarlet trews!
Nice snap of Seamus, too, met him in London's King's Place.
