I remember a poetry reading that I attended many years ago. The poet was a well-known writer from Liverpool called Roger McGough. His poems touch people, because they deal with familiar things in our lives.
He read two of his most famous poems: 'The Trouble with Snowmen' and 'The Sound Collector'. The latter is about how we would miss familiar sounds if someone came to take them away from us.
That experience reinforced my love of poetry, and I read at least one new poem each week - carefully, giving myself time to think about its meaning. I now also write my own poems, but only for my own pleasure, not for publication!

Hi Peter Walton,
I have just read your comment. It sounds interesting to me. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
