Happy twenty-first day of NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo, everybody.

Today’s featured participant is Catrin Mari, who brings us a neatly rhymed appreciation of a little-known historical figure, Dr. William Price of Lllantrisant, Wales. (With apologies for the late posting!)

Our resource for the day is the website of the Oxford Professor of Poetry, where you’ll find audio files of the nine lectures given by Alice Oswald across the four years of her appointed term.

And now for our (optional) prompt! Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem that repeats or focuses on a single color. Some examples for you – Diane Wakoski’s “Blue Monday,” Walter de la Mare’s “Silver,” and Dorothea Lasky’s “Red Rum.”

Happy writing!
