em_john: Can we spread some actual facts about this Rachael Heyhoe Flint statue 'controversy'? 1) Clare Connor didn't 'propose' the statue this week. MCC have been discussing the idea for a while and it's been warmly embraced by pretty much everyone who's heard about it 1/2

em_john: 2) The MCC 'opposition' was a couple of chaps disagreeing with Clare at an online meeting whose contributions were met with indifference by all but the journalists who then wrote about them. Sorry these facts are so dull and there's no actual controversy to get wound up about…

Write your comment about John Clare

Ioana Virginia Bolba: John Clare is a wonderful poet. At first sight, one may think he is superficial, but going into details, we discover an intuitive poet, writing only about what he himself felt (not thought), and offering an interesting life lesson, an example of how we should enjoy small things and, most of all, against that rude running after money and not understanding what life actually means.

Poem of the day

Carl Sandburg Poem
Baby Toes
 by Carl Sandburg

There is a blue star, Janet,
Fifteen years- ride from us,
If we ride a hundred miles an hour.

There is a white star, Janet,
Forty years- ride from us,
If we ride a hundred miles an hour.
