Get in the flaming June mood at Write Out Loud Marsden tonight
Where does the phrase Flaming June come from? Possibly from Sir Frederic Leighton’s 1895 painting, Flaming June, pictured. June has also inspired many poems such as ‘June’ by Carl Sandburg, Louis MacNiece’s ‘June Thunder’, Alfred Austin’s ‘A Night in June’, or The Garden of Eros’ by Oscar Wilde. Why not get in the June mood with open-floor poetry at Write out Marsden on Wednesday 15 June, with host Julian Jordon. It starts at 7.30pm at Marsden library, Peel Street, Marsden.
