Ripples Beyond the Pool – by Kathleen Swann
Kathleen was brought up in rural Cumbria and now lives in North Yorkshire. She spent her working life in the NHS and, since her retirement, is now able to concentrate on her family, gardening and studying and writing poetry.
This collection embraces relationships with family and friends and reflects a love of rural life and characters. It also takes us on visits to other countries and cultures. Her poems have been published on-line and in several anthologies and magazines. In 2019 Kathleen worked with a young composer to produce a song which was performed at the International Leeds Lieder Festival.
