National Poetry Day 2012 falls on Oct 4th this year – http://www.nationalpoetryday.co.uk/

We’ve set up a display in the library to celebrate the day.

The theme for this year is stars!  We like the poem below which reflects this theme….

When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer by Walt Whitman
When I heard the learn’d astronomer,
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,
When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them,
When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room,
How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,
Till rising and gliding out I wander’d off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.
