New Poet Laureate

My 30 day poetry challenge ended yesterday. As an unexpected present, I just read that Carol Ann Duffy has been chosen as the first poet laureate in the UK. Sometimes change is good.

According to the AP article:
She (Duffy) said poetry "is a place we can go to for comfort, celebration, when we're in love, when we're bereaved and sometimes for events that happen to us as a nation."
