In this, the fifth and final episode of our series on the coronavirus and lockdown, we present poems on fortitude, survival, and renewal. After this episode we’ll explore other subjects such as poetic style, genre, form, technique, and history as well as topical themes in areas like nature, politics, war, music, etc. Look at my Sound Page for a list of upcoming show topics and see if you have a poem, short prose piece, monologue, or other work that you’d like to submit as an audio file to be included in a future show.
I’m adding the YouTube video here as well. The show is primarily audio and the video portion little more than slides. But some prefer it that way and YouTube also provides links to some of the music and performances. I have also provided links for the text of most of the poems used for those who like to read along.
