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.
November by Thomas Hood (1799-1845)
21st November 2018

No sun—no moon! 
No morn—no noon—
No dawn—no dusk—no proper time of day. 
No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease, 
No comfortable feel in any member—
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees, 
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds!—
November!
