How pleased I was to hear the news, that the very brilliant poet Carol Ann Duffy has been chosen to be our new Poet Laureate. I have been a devotee of  her wonderful poems for sometime now, especially her wonderful book “Rapture” which is essential reading for those of us,  lucky to understand that  poems can help us, even during the most painful episodes in our lives.  Her poems are really profound, humane longings of passion, they can and do speak for so many of us. Well done Carol Ann Duffy who is also the  very  first woman Poet.
