Poynton Library is celebrating National Poetry Day with its second annual Poetry Trail, brainchild of author Margaret Holbrook. A range of diverse and captivating poems are displayed in the library and around the lovely shops and eateries of Poynton. I have two poems in the library.  I shall read them and a new poem inspired by this year’s theme of Freedom at the open mic event (see below). Everyone welcome to this free event to recite or listen.
