Poetry Day Among The Bluebells

7th May, 2015, it's Poetry Day in Ireland, so we did an extra Bards In The Woods, on. Thursday evening among the Bluebells of Derren Woods.


Some new water pools since we were here last Sunday ...


A breeder of midges ...


though it was only at a couple of spots they bothered us.

The group enter the Bluebell World ...


I never get a pic of everybody together ...


I think it was 8 of us, and unlike last Sunday, all via Facebook this time and none via Poetry Ireland.

Oops, keep off the Bluebells ...


Yes, these Bluebells ...


Some stops for poem readings ...


At some point I will upload the YouTubes of the readings ...

Some poems about Bluebells, though ...


and we explore more ...


to see more Bluebells ...


Including white ones, sometimes ...


and wild garlic


We mourned the passing of our Bardic Tree, seemingly felled for no real reason ...


The last glimmer of sun before sunset ...


Time for tea before we go


and snacks ...


Then suddenly, all of the quiet people pulled poems out of their pockets
... and read them, and they were good !!!

Amazing how the fellowship of food brings sudden confidence and sharing with people. I will tag video clips of poems today, to this blog post, soon

There was something very peaceful about being out on a midweek evening, and into the darkening dusk, though often on Sunday we continue into dusk too. Overall, a different feeling though.

Same again on Poetry Day next year, I think :-)
