I was pleased to submit this poem to a cool project!

Acton Scott Farm in Shropshire England has a resident poet called Jean Atkin running a fascinating poetry project that she outlines on her blog:  Check it out!

Love those beautiful Shire horses!

I’d love a trip to England to visit the farm.  If you’re a little closer than Western Canada, you should go! 🙂

  1. Since I’m in New York I will visit via Blog, however one day I would like to go. Perhaps next summer or fall. I’ve always wanted to visit England. Since I work for a museum I want to visit the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Museum. As a writer I’m sure London and the English countryside would give me loads of inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

    • Don’t miss the British National Library when you’re in London. No admission fee, but it has 3 copies of the Magna Carta, Gutenberg bibles, illuminated manuscripts, korans, things of the Bronte sisters, Jane Austen’s writing desk, earliest Shakespearean folios, the paper napkin Lennon and McCartney wrote Yesterday on, etc. 🙂 Our little hotel (glorified B&B) owner recommended it to us and it was a great suggestion.

      Also, don’t miss the amazing United Nude shoe store in Covent Garden! (Floral Street, to be precise).

    I just sent one in! Thanks for sharing this. Mine is about buttercups 🙂

    • 🙂 Wonderful!

      I just sent mine last week, though I wrote it back in early May. I found it in the ‘drafts’ folder instead of the ‘sent’ folder. I hate it when that happens.
