I blogged about the Carry a Poem campaign a while back here. Well these lovely free books were distributed throughout Edinburgh yesterday, here's the link to my story in the book about William Carlos Williams's To a Poor Old Woman.

I'm having trouble getting your story page to load. Must be a lot of traffic or something.

I got through! Loved the tale, and the lay-out and illustration.
Brill.
And I remember the reading too!

Hadn't seen or heard the poem, but read it before I read your input. Absolutely agree.

Roxana said...

i am also fascinated with this poem - and the design of the page is great, i loved everything!

Jim Murdoch said...

Does that mean the collective noun for plums is 'a solace'?

Yes, it's thirty years since I first read that poem. His poetry had such a powerful effect on me. Just how little you can get away with and still have a poem.

Rachel Fox said...

Managed to see it today. It will always be your poem to me now!

Your story is one of the best descriptions I've ever read of the action of poetry on the soul -- this caving that must be satisfied, like an insistent food craving in pregnancy...

Sorlil said...

yes, food for the body and soul :)
