VLOGGING WITH ‘LOCKDOWN POETRY’
Hi, a rare addition to this page of poetry and music, with a shout-out for my Youtube channel, steelcityman Why steelcityman ?, Well I was born and bred in Steel City…SHEFFIELD even though I now live in LEEDS, WEST YORKSHIRE, I’m a Steel City man at heart.
In The dim and distant past of panic and lockdowns, thanks to Covid! I decided to use poetry as a subject for my Youtube channel, steelcityman , for a few weeks and see how well it went down with my followers. ( If you follow the link it will take you to the video content page of the channel )
The poetry I chose to read and analyze on the vlogs are some of my favourites, and a few newly discovered ones. It’s quite an eclectic selection, ranging from the powerful content of Maya Angelou and Walt Whitman to some of the humour of Pam Ayres, as well as some that really do need explaining to understand the real ‘stuff’ behind them. Once again, the link to follow is … steelcityman
Please let me know what you think of the poems I chose to read on the lockdown vlogs, because I’ve been thinking of doing more, and feedback would be very useful….
