Wake: Up to Poetry

"The act of poetry is a rebel act."

The Poetry Project

Harry Clifton’s poem “Picardy” was highlighted in the latest piece for The Poetry Project.  Take a few moments to just breath and enjoy a mental health break with this combination of poetry and natural imagery:  David Farrell and Harry Clifton, “Picardy” .
“Picardy” is from Clifton’s volume Secular Eden, winner of the 2008 Irish Times Poetry Now award.  If you would like to read more by Clifton, take a look here.
Be sure to check out previous installments of The Poetry Project.  Once a week they upload a new video as part of the Culture Programme for the European Union presidency; it’s a great way to discover new artists.  (Previous installments featured poems by fellow Wake Forest poets Thomas Kinsella, Eilean Ni Chuilleanain, Vona Groarke, Nuala Ni Dhomhnaill, and many more.)  Enjoy!
