The Wells Festival of Literature is over for 2014
A Modern Festival
For a week it was our home;
a temple on the grass, a stone
pilgrim by the door, a mahogany
desk within, blessed with faded books,
reminding of the thoughts of other
ages, bound in buckram.
At our bidding, writers, readers,
tread in past the green and
iridescent leaves of the old garden
to speak and listen in our common
language, to the thinking and the
passions of today.
