This workshop responds to the Springtime mood of last month’s class, exploring poetry about flowers!
This morning we will:
Hear some poems which describe and observe flowers, and use flowers as a jumping-off point for a wide range of different ideas and moods.
Discuss how the authors express their feelings and convey their thoughts.
Talk reflectively together, share our perspectives and favourites, and how these poems can give us a new insight.
1. William Wordsworth, Daffodils
2. Cynthia Zarin, Flowers
3. Sylvia Plath, extracts from Tulips
4. Richard Wilbur, Having Misidentified a Wildflower
You may like to have a look at Words for our selection of poetry and prose on the theme of death and dying.
We’d love to hear your thoughts, suggestions, and learn from your insights and experiences. Feel free to speak to the nursing team or get in touch with us directly firstname.lastname@example.org.
