April is National Poetry Month and this year the theme is Nature. So who better to inaugurate this daily poem NPM initiative than the late, brilliant Pat Lowther, who so often spoke of nature as a source of inspiration?
“For 35 years, the late Pat Lowther has played an emblematic role for women poets in our country. In spite of a demanding domestic life, she committed herself to words, dared to be a better writer than her husband and, on the page, wouldn’t shut up. She made her poetry matter. Her passion for life shines from the first poem to the last.”
