Episode 65: ”Miracle On St. David’s Day”

April 12, 2022

I hope my Welsh listeners won't give me too much trouble over the fact that St. David's Day is long past... better late, eh?

This is a rich episode from Keith Hansen! He brings us "Miracle On St. David's Day" by Gillian Clarke, which beautifully reflects on the power of memorized poetry. Keith also shares Malcome Guite's remarks on the poem, and throws in Wordsworth's  dreamy "Daffodils" as a bonus! ENJOY!
