Residents at Aden Court care home in Huddersfield have been sharing their favourite poems during a monthly poetry society meeting. In a good-hearted "Oh Captain! My Captain" manner.
The poetry has proved to be very popular with the residents, many using the opportunity to reminisce and recite poems from their lifetime, the Carer reports.
The society is currently reviewing their favourite poems, with each resident given the opportunity to score poems read out during the session. The highest ranked poems are being collected in a book. Among the poems already selected are "Daffodils" by William Wordsworth, "The Owl and the Pussycat" by Edward Lear and "Flanders Fields" by John McCrae.
Leaving our bid still open for selection...
