Poetry Course

On the Easter week I am going to attend a poetry course in Flamborough on the North-East, on the coast, of England. It's a course organized by Paul Sutherland, editor of Dream Catcher.
Poetry will be discussed, considered and maybe eventually written. One of the works the course will turn to is "Dart" by Alice Oswald.
 I am anxious and thrilled for that. After months and months of English I listen to only on TV and speak at school with my Italian students now I am going to face the real thing. I think it's not much different from a boy playing for years soccer with his friends in his backyard and at last finding himself in a real stadium for a real football match.

I am green with envy. I have several of her works, but you remind me of the one glaring omission. I must put it right forthwith! Enjoy!
