“Encore – Encore – Encore!” This was the cry from the audience at the Syntax meeting on Wednesday 19th Sept as the guest speaker enthralled all those lucky enough to be present.
David Lightfoot is a highly regarded published writer and poet and his work has been in numerous anthologies alongside such luminaries as the current poet laureate , Carol Ann Duffy and he writes in a way that everyone can relate to and understand.
The range of topics he writes about is prolific, covering every conceivable aspect of life, love, nature, people, places and humour and he was kind enough to give one of his books (entitled ‘Wounds Heal’) to everyone who attended.
David had been scheduled to read his poems for about three quarters of an hour but such was the enthusiasm during the refreshment break that he agreed to read a few more poems – we could have listened for hours!
