Poems in the Waiting Room is thrilled to be celebrating our National Poetry Day with the support of the Southern DHB. Patients at Dunedin, Wakari, Southland and Lakes District Hospitals will be treated to poetry, supplied by Poems in the Waiting Room, on their lunchtime meal trays for them to enjoy.
The poems have been chosen to suit all tastes with adult poems on one side of the sheet and a poem for younger patients on the other side.
Sincere thanks to Liz Pulford, Andre Surridge, Karen Peterson Butterworth, Catherine Bullock and Fiona Farrell for the loan of their poems, haiku and tanka. Thanks also to the generosity of the amazing team at Southern DHB – the artwork and printing are fabulous.
