The power of poetry

People have long turned to poetry to make sense of the world. Ever since the technology of pen and paper has allowed, people have used poetic verse to capture the experience of life. Today is no different. 

As we live through one of the most profound moments in our lives, again people are putting pen to paper and writing poetry as a means of reflection on what we're living through. 

Three members of clergy in the Diocese of Chester who enjoy writing poetry held a conversation via Zoom to explore why it is that poetry still has such an appeal and a power.
