Happy National Poetry Day!

Happy National Poetry Day 2015!

Today the whole of the UK celebrates poetry in its many forms, and the theme for 2015 is ‘light’.There are many events taking place across the country so let us know, either on Facebook or Twitter how you’ve been celebrating.

From Wordsworth’s ‘celestial light‘ in 1804 to Simon Barraclough’s ‘Sunspots‘ in 2015, poets have always been influenced by light and darkness so we asked you to submit light-themed couplets to brighten up our twitter feed. You can see a selection below, or take a look a selection of light poems on The Poetry Society website.

We’ll continue to have even more features and challenges into the next poetry year, so keep checking back, or sign up to our mailing list.
