Poems & quotes

WD FoE and our Mayor, Ian Bark, invite you to

Share a message for the future

Write a poem, share your favourite quote, draw (share) a cartoon. Tell us your hopes, your worries, your anger or determination.

These will be displayed at the opening gathering on the Wall of Words at the FoE stall and randomly about Bridport. Open to all ages: handwritten, typed, signed or anonymous. Please keep it fairly short and from the heart. Send to jenny@thehacketts.uk or hand in at the Bridport Tourist Information Centre.

Some samples:

But it is not enough to weep for our lost landscapes; we have to put our hands in the earth to make ourselves whole again.  Even a wounded world is feeding us.  Even a wounded world holds us, giving us moments of wonder and joy.   I choose joy over despair. Not because I have my head in the sand, but because joy is what the earth gives me daily and I must return the gift.   R W Kimmerer
