A colourful and serene outlook…at long last. So, Why (not) enjoy lounging
in a
Hammock as D. R. James suggests, says Pat Murgatroyd… more or less.
And you’re sure to find
The Cat On The Moon most entertaining,
as does
Roger Singer, and maybe a trip to Mongolia with L. B. Jørgensen,
although still intriguing, like
Graham Mort’s Dorp.
After all, it’s always useful  to try
A Different Language (Bethany Eves) –
especially when it comes to the
Life of a Poem as described by Mark Pirie,
As always,
Orbis makes quite a lively read….
