Happy St David's Day

To mark St David's Day, Wales has got a new national poet – Ifor ap Glyn. You can read more about it here.

And (you knew this was coming, didn't you?), I'm going to mark the day by reading some of the work of my favourite Welsh poet, RS Thomas.

It's not difficult to find his poems all over the internet (although better still, buy the Collected Poems and Later Collected Poems), but to get you started, here's Lore.

Dear Matt

RS Thomas is my favourite Welsh poet too and I own copies of most of his work. March 1st was also my late mother's birthday so it's a very important day for me.

Best wishes from Simon R. Gladdish
