We’re excited to announce that Poetry Day Ireland 2020 is taking place on Thursday 30 April 2020 – make sure to save the date !
The theme for Poetry Day Ireland 2020 is ‘There will be time’.
Time – we never seem to have enough of it and it moves too fast. Or else it moves too slowly for our liking, as we count down minutes, hours and days.
Time is universal in all of our lives. Whether we’re looking to the past, living in the ‘here and now’ or pondering what our future will look like.
Each poem is a time machine – travelling to the past or the present or the future, examining the way we were, are, and hope to be.
‘There will be time’ is particularly apt as a theme for 2020, which is a Leap Year. We especially notice the mutability of time when an entire extra day materialises in the year because of our collective will.
