Then whether you’re 8 or 88, you’ll love Rhyme Time at Martinborough Library on National Poetry Day.

Enjoy the Martinborough Star’s resident rhymester John Ansell and head librarian Shirley Nightingale reciting the poems of master twits like Roald Dahl, Ogden Nash, Spike Milligan, Pam Ayres and Les Barker.

Learn about the craft of humorous rhyme, and bring along a rhyming poem of your own.

Chocolate fish to the funniest!

When Poetry Comes to Town continues the Wairarapa tradition of National Poetry Day activities across the region, this time starting at 12:01am on the morning of the day and finishing up around midnight of the Friday itself, with 8 events in all. Readings by published poets, a session of rhymes for children, poetry and birdsong for nature lovers, open mics, poetry at favorite cafes and bookstores -- they'll be something for everyone almost everywhere across the Wairarapa.
Coordinated by Wairarapa Word
