Unleash your
inner poet

Residents at Aden Court care home in Huddersfield have been sharing their favourite poems during a monthly poetry society meeting. In a good-hearted "Oh Captain! My Captain" manner. 

The poetry has proved to be very popular with the residents, many using the opportunity to reminisce and recite poems from their lifetime, the Carer reports. 

The society is currently reviewing their favourite poems, with each resident given the opportunity to score poems read out during the session. The highest ranked poems are being collected in a book. Among the poems already selected are "Daffodils" by William Wordsworth, "The Owl and the Pussycat" by Edward Lear and "Flanders Fields" by John McCrae.

Leaving our bid still open for selection...

"The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by T.S. Eliot:

Let us go then, you and I, 
When the evening is spread out against the sky 
Like a patient etherized upon a table; 
Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets, 
The muttering retreats 
Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels 
And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells: 
Streets that follow like a tedious argument 
Of insidious intent 
To lead you to an overwhelming question ... 
Oh, do not ask, “What is it?” 
Let us go and make our visit.
