It’s the end of the day so let’s enjoy a few hours of delicious poetry. We’ll taste our way in! We’ll enjoy both edible delights as well as savory words on the page. We’ll discuss some luscious poems, and try our hand at lyric writing uses our senses. Beginners are not only welcome but encouraged!!
