On The Poetry Fence
She led groups–many of them children–to meet the farm in poetry, and chronicled her adventures here.
One of her initiatives was The Poetry Fence, for which she solicited short pieces which evoked the farm–Acton Scott, another farm in Shropshire, another farm in the world. At the behest of the expat poet Jenny Doughty, I submitted a short piece, which Jean was kind enough to include on the fence.
So. A part of me on a fence on a farm in Shropshire.
There’s something symbolic there.
