Carol Thompson, harps
Poems read by Jack Vickrey

We think all of these poems are very special. We spend many hours matching the poetry in many cases with music from the country of the writer. We try to take into account the meaning, the mood, the historical context, and our own personal feelings about the poetry. We hope it brings you many hours of enjoyment.

Poem information is in blue.
