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 his scarlet trews! 

Nice snap of Seamus, too, met him in London's King's Place.
