poems and a short story, Hafeez, John of the Cross, death, friends, Angus
In this DuEt Simon Hodges explore some of the mystics. He recites beautifully Hafeez’ “A glass of wine” translated by Robert Blye and then he reads John of the Cross’ “The Dark Night” – you can find this poem here. Svend-Erik is then inspired to tell about The Storytelling Academy and the work we did with “The Death in Bagdad”. The story of the goldfish in the blender makes Simon laugh. Then my prepared story about friendship and voices in a young man’s head. To that Simon responds with The Song of Wandering Angus by W.B. Yeats – find it here. Enjoy the DuEt!
