National Poetry Day celebration on Saturday October 3rd - When Joy Begins

 The Bards of the Bard School and friends would love to invite you to their 4th Bardic Mic Night since lockdown... held on zoom, but surprisingly nonetheless soulful and nourishing!


The theme of National Poetry Day this year is Vision... 

Our mic night name comes from a beautiful Jewish prayer that I was taught by Carmelite hermits when I travelled to Nova Scotia many years ago.  

"It is already night when joy begins

the Sabbath is at hand

And a beautifying surplus of soul visits our mortal bones

And lingers on."


And may it be so with you. 


See you there!  Saturday 3rd October doors open 6.45pm UK time.

Zoom ID 858 1275 6667

Pay on the Day.

A listener's review of audio book



5.0 out of 5 starsBuy it! Read it! Listen to it!! Treasure lies within!!!

50 Poems for my 50th - A Beginner’s guide to opening the world with words.

"Sarah's beautiful and transportive audiobook sings in the heart long after listening to it.

I find it simultaneously challenges one to think and puts the heart back together in a magical and loving way. Her poetry is at once expressive and delicately tender, proving a valued ally for one’s journey along whatever path of life one chooses. 

I think her wit, charm and erudite use of metaphor adds colour equally to an innocent tone-poem or a more philosophical dialectical study. I find Sarah’s character in her work speaks volumes about her approach to life :- add humour and loving presence; hey presto: joy!!!


Her spiritual insight is precious and timeless, as seen in the hermit story or ‘a black sheep’. Her newer work is often more pensive and poignant but her wisdom-being always shines through."
