Poetry champ

We watched the BBC4's Book Quiz poetry special last night on catch-up. Helen Szirtes had told me at the wedding that her dad had done rather well and so he did. I was very pleased to see that I would have done pretty well myself had I been on the programme. I was on fire.

Having said that - it's a lot easier coming up with the answers sitting on the sofa than it is when you are frightened of looking like an idiot on TV. I was particularly impressed at George Szirtes' listing of Poet Laureates (in reverse order).
