“Sweet spring is yourtime is my time is ourtime for springtime is lovetimeand viva sweet love” once wrote the poet E. E. Cummings.
So it was that on Wednesday, April 17, the Cape Cod Writers Center celebrated National Poetry Month at Uno’s Chicago Grille before 40 members and guests. After cocktails and dinner, Master poet Alice Kociemba, director of Calliope Poetry Readings, opened the program with several readings and an introduction to the evening’s participants.
Alice was followed by the Cape Cod Writers Center’s poetic board member, George Comeaux.
John Bonnani, founding editor of the Cape Cod Poetry Review, entertained and amused the audience with selections from is recent work.
The evening concluded with a moving series of readings by the widely acclaimed poet Charles Coe based upon memories of his late parents.
