This is such a wonderfully literature-y month! World Book Day and World Poetry Day in one month? Heaven.
I do seem to be drawn to prose more than poetry but I cannot deny the sheer beauty of it. I was trying to work out which poem I fancied sharing but struggled to decide on a favourite so I chose a slightly different route.
Since going to university, one of my favourite new activities has been poetry readings and slams and I love poetry in performance as a result. When trawling the internet, I came across this gem and I knew this was what I would offer to my lovely readers on World Poetry Day. There seems to be a whole collection of these for those of you who fall for this, which you probably will…
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present a reading of Lord Byron’s She Walks in Beauty by Tom Hiddleston.. Isn’t his voice perfect for poetry?
His face isn’t too shabby either.
