Ice Cream, Thank You - performed by John Maytham and compiled by Finuala Dowling
Ice cream, thank you
It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
of what is found there.
William Carlos Williams
We’ve never needed the kind of news that poetry brings more than we do today. Ice Cream, Thank You, compiled by Finuala Dowling and performed by John Maytham, brings together an array of poems that will leave you feeling stronger and more resilient, better able to cope with both the pandemic you’re living through and the fact of human mortality. Featuring poems by a range of famous and lesser-known poets including the voices of Seamus Heaney, Dylan Thomas, Mary Oliver, Pablo Neruda and Wislawa Szymborska, this hour-long event will elicit tears, wonder and laughter.
Summit Place Guest House is located in the heart of the tranquil Constantia Valley Winelands. Apart from offering relaxed self-catering accommodation, their beautiful garden lends itself perfectly to chilled sundowner happenings.
Seating is your picnic blanket, but there are also some garden benches that can be utilised.
Bring your own drinks.
Performance begins at 6pm. Doors open at 5.30pm.
