The Ordinary Woman And Other Poems I Love
By Kathleen Watkins
Kathleen Watkins has always loved poetry. From the days she had to learn it line by line at school to performing it at gatherings of family and friends, and as part of her stage show with her husband, the broadcaster Gay Byrne – it has been and still is a constant in her life.
This personal, curated collection of favourite poems from Kathleen is a small but perfectly formed anthology, covering the best of Irish poets including Brendan Kennelly, Padraic Colum, Seamus Heaney, Rita Ann Higgins, Carol Ann Duffy, Eavan Boland, Patrick Kavanagh, Mary Dorcey, WB Yeats, Francis Ledwidge and Paula Meehan.
