Welcome to this week’s episode of Poetic Beats with Howard Bond and Davy D, recorded on the 12th of February 2018 on Red Kite Radio.
Continuing February’s theme of Love, Davy D reads his poem Love Is, a poem for Valentine’s Day inspired by Adrian Henri’s poem of the same name. Adrian Henri’s Love Is first appeared in the poetry anthology, The Mersey Sound, published in 1967. The Mersey Sound revolutionised poetry, taking it off the shelf and onto the street and has sold over 500,000 copies. Along with Henri, the anthology contains poems from Roger McGough and Brian Patten and went on to inspire a new generation of poets as well as many musicians.
