What is poetry town?

Poetry Town began in 2015 with a weekly poem displayed in the window of Kirkdale Bookshop. Following overwhelmingly positive responses from customers we have decided to partner with Sydenham Arts to build on the idea and fill Sydenham with poetry­ not just by famous poets but by local people, both young and old.
My Little Dreams by Georgia Douglas Johnson (1880-1966)
24th April 2019

I’m folding up my little dreams
   Within my heart tonight,
And praying I may soon forget
   The torture of their sight.

For time’s deft fingers scroll my brow
   With fell relentless art—
I’m folding up my little dreams
   Tonight, within my heart.
