Poetry Brunch - bring a memorized poem!

Having a lazy breakfast at Panera, enjoying a break before or after the errands while chatting and reading poetry is my kind of Saturday morning. When it's warm we will sit outside. I will be there from 10 AM to roughly 12:30 PM. Please join me - even if you are coming later! - for a poetic breakfast!

At one of the recent Poetry Brunches, we've discussed memorizing poems. And quite a few poets could actually recite a poem they've memorized (even as far back as Elementary School). So, we want to put the challenge out there: come to the Brunch with a poem in your heart and share it with us. While desired, knowing a poem by heart is not a prerequisite to join us for Brunch.

      Jersey! Geeky! This must be Angelika's idea of irony.

    Famous Last Words quiz: "The Post Romantics - 19th Century Britaish and American Poets: Robert Browning, Emily Dickinson, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Alfred Tennyson, Walt Whitman, Oscar Wilde". I expect we'll see some high scores this time. The author should be fairly easy as these poets have such vastly different styles, from Tennyson's brooding melancholy (T. S. Eliot called him "the saddest of all English poets") to Whitman's free verse.

    Prizes for all!

    So sorry that I can't come this month. An out of town trip has changed my weekend plans. I hope to be there on Sept. 7.

    I feel so bad that I have to cancel! I need to help my daughter move into her apartment in Boone. If there is ANY WAY for me to leave for Boone later than the rest of the family, I will.

    In the meantime, for people who like my microbe poetry, you might like this article, and understand better why I find microbes fascinating:

    This is not a hard and fast yes, since I'm not sure I'll be awake by then. But if I am, I'll be there

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
