Children’s Heart Week: Rebecca Goss

I’m honoured to have been invited to contribute to Rebecca Goss’s blog project, posting poems for Children’s Heart Week, which starts today.

My poem will be part of the Friday group.

Please click on any of the text below to be redirected to Rebecca’s blog, and read the moving poems she’s gathered.

Rebecca writes:

For Children’s Heart Week this year, May 12th – 18th, this blog will be become a blog of ‘Heart Poems’, by contemporary poets, some written especially for the week. Each day, I will post some Children’s Heart Federation information – alongside the poems. I’m trying to raise awareness of the charity and congenital heart disease – and share poems.

Do please check in and read, but also feel free to spread the word on social media:
