When Robert Burns Came to Tea and other poems
By (author) Bridget Nolan
In this second collection of poetry, Bridget Nolan explores the human experience in some unexpected ways. Her ability to stir emotions provokes thought, triggers laughter and occasions tears.From the comical title poem ‘When Robert Burns came to Tea’ to the heartbreaking ‘Why would I Imagine?’ Bridget presents a collection of stories in poetic form. In her varied style, she conveys a myriad thoughts and feelings: the joy of love; the pain of a continuing sense of loss; the embarrassment of a hospital visit and the comfort of the natural world are all woven into the narrative of this diverse collection. This anthology celebrates the human condition in all its shades of dark and light.
Bridget Nolan was born and brought up in the Kentish countryside. She had stories included in two well-known magazines before her first anthology of poetry ‘A Walk with Charles Dickens and Other Poems’ was published in 2018. Her work has been commissioned, most recently for the Dickens Festival in her home town of Rochester and for a collection put together to raise money for The Bumblebee Conservation Trust. As well as composing and performing her poetry, Bridget gives talks on the joy and the process of writing.
