John Betjeman – Death in Leamington

I will happily admit that one of my favourite poets is John Betjeman.  Last night I was in bed watching Kenneth Williams being interviewed by Michael Parkinson.  He was in the company of Maggie Smith & John Betjeman and towards the end of the excerpt they had a piece where Kenneth & Maggie read a Betjeman poem.  It was beautiful!  As P. says he could listen to Maggie Smith read anything but I have to say I thought Kenneth Williams was fantastic – once he’s voice is controlled it’s very moving.

So here is:

Death in Leamington



As I type I'm 40 odd yrs. Sometimes very odd :) I'm married and have 2 cats - Oscar & Daisy. I love to cook, craft, read & watch TV This is to be the place that makes me smile.
