Edinburgh Writers and Poets and Outlander

Edinburgh, part two (of three)!

Today's photos are all linked to writers and poets.

World's End pub

Doom Bar beer, which I was drinking because that's what Detective Cormoran Strike drinks in the Robert Galbraith novels.
Strike does not have a sleeping baby in the vicinty.

Hamilton and Young, jewellery designers, on the Royal Mile, and their Outlander display!
I bought a lovely pair of Dragonfly in Amber earrings, a couple of gifts, and a Craigh na Dun Christmas ornament!

Our first logo for the Outlander Switzerland group, with Graham McTavish's appreciation!

Where Johnson once stayed...

The poet Fergusson and the churchyard
Where the poet Shelley stayed when he ran away with Mary

I haven't read any Fergusson yet, but I've actually been doing rather well with my new ROW80 goal of reading the books I already own -- and with my hope from last year's review of books read that I would read more poetry.

Here are the latest poems:

Career by Yevtushenko
Human life in this century by Yevtushenko
Willow by Anna Akhmatova
Sonnet LXVI by Shakespeare
Sir Walter Raleigh to His Son
Fair Jenny by Robbie Burns
MacPherson's Farewell by Robbie Burns
O Wert Thou In The Cauld Blast by Robbie Burns
The Rolling English Road by G. K. Chesterton
Ode on Venice by Lord Byron

Have you read -- or written -- a poem lately?
