Commemorative Poem Initiative
The poems here, chosen and read by members of the University, are grouped around occasions that bring us together and prompt reflection. Some of these occasions are cause for celebration, others, times of sombre commemoration. Poetry has always formed part of how we find words in acute moments, both for ourselves and for each other. We hope that, through our reading of these poems, they can speak to you.
