Time for some poetry

Mirian Fuhr's picture

 After a very productive and busy week, now it's time to relax for a while listening to some beautiful poetry.

Grown in Glasgow, the poet, artist and documentary film-maker Imtiaz Dharker is reading some of her beautiful poems from her book 'Over the Moon'.

At the beginning of her session, she said that children are great at experimenting with words, they are naturally creative, and very often like poetry. However, they might forget it when growing older. Then teachers, she said, have the power to open the door for poetry again! 

I will certainly remember it and make use of this power in the classroom, but for now, I will just keep on listening to her!    I am delighted with her poems!
