Last night Ian McMillan the English Poet was in full flow and just back with his Radio Programme on BBC Radio 3 with all the witty remarks needed to get the New Year off to a great start. He had a surprise guest .. the poet Tom Paulin and Paulin is a great favourite here in the UK and teachs at Oxford University. They dutifully referred to Auden in this programme and during other occasions I have heard Tom Paulin discuss Blake but it was unusual in all this name dropping of great poets to hear the name of Robert Frost. And I thought to myself .. thats a different approach .. isnt Robert Frost an American Poet!
I got no answer ..but I wondered how Ian McMillan and Tom Paulin got all their money together and thought it a good idea to write to the UK National Lottery after listening to this programme and I got a reply! Guess what! A form to fill in about .. how to get
Lottery Funded by UK Film Council in London ..... fingers crossed I get Lottery Funded by the same organisation .......... great poets produce great poetry .. keep on blogging.
