Loving my first poetry audiobook
I have never read the print version so I cannot compare.
The way the narrators brought this poetry to life!
I particularly enjoyed the delivery of the Lorna Goodison poem "By Love Possessed".
Yes, a lot of laughing. A few heart twinges.
Poetry at Audible is a pleasure.
