Live Poets Society Met Today @ Winnsboro Emporium
With 5 Founding Members & 3 New Members Present
At this month's meeting of the Live Poets Society, present were five original founding members: Bonnie Sir Kegian White (leader and founder), Conrad Wolfman, Angela Wylie, Lucy Germany and Joe Dan Boyd.
Three new poets joined the group at this meeting: Ayne Agassi, James Chambers and Amy Pierson.
Lucy Germany read Archibald MacLeish's "Ars Poetica" and an "untitled" original poem. Bonnie Sir Kegian White read Robert Service's "The Shooting Of Dan McGrew" and an original poem "Sepia Or Technicolor." Conrad Wolfman read an original published poem "Winter Fantasy" and a Japanese poem "Little Sister." Joe Dan Boyd read Edgar Guest's "Raisin Pie," and displayed a photo of his Aunt Maude Tinney Cater and her personal recipe for that unique dish, Joe Dan's favorite dessert. Ayne Agassi read 3 original poems: "Dialog of Silence," "Picking Flowers" and "Until You." Amy Pierson brought her book of poetry, Tea And Talk, from which she read "The Smile Of Sammy." Angela Wylie, perhaps this group's most highly decorated poet read 2 original works: "Cold" and "So Tired."
The Live Poets Society meets monthly (most of the time) at The Winnsboro Emporium, hosted by proprietor Conrad Wolfman, on North Main Street in beautiful downtown Winnsboro. The group welcomes other poets or fans of poetry who just like to listen. The next meeting is scheduled for Dec. 16, 2011.
