I don’t know if I’ve mentioned but I struggle with poetry. Lots of clergy love it but I just don’t get it. Well I do get it but you really have to work at it, right? Son #1 writes poetry and I get his – well, it is kind of ‘in your face’ poetry. I don’t read poetry often because I think I am too impatient. However sometimes poems come your way and occasionally I do get it. I even write some of them down. Carol Ann Duffy’s poems would fall into that category. She does religion and humour too. So I get her poetry.
But best of all she is the first woman poet laureate and a Scot to boot. Yeh!
