Poetry is honey for the soul
I first “met”Jodie Roberts on Facebook as “Geranium Cat”; I loved the name and she was kind to the young beginner I was then. I discovered later that she was deeply committed to the life of her family, her region, her job, writing, reading, reviewing books, blogging, belonging to various orgnisations , her pets – cats and dogs – and “her girls” – her hens!
I feel very happy that she has reciprocated friendship with me. She has even been so confident in some of my capacities that she has allowed me to help her in one of her functions, concerning literature. Can you imagine a French girl working for a British organisation, under the wing of a British lady, about British literature? Well, Jodie made it!
For the occasion of “a poem a day”, she has chosen the following broadcast of Anthony Hopkins saying the famous villanelle “Do not go gentle into that good night” by Dylan Thomas.
Do not go gentle into that good night
