Sonnets at The Chiswick

Chiswick Nursing Centre residents recently enjoyed a visit from The Hammersmith Sonnet Group who entertained them with a selection of sonnets.

The word sonnet, literally means ‘little song’ and is a 14-line poem first introduced to Britain in the 16th century. It was heart-warming to see this tradition being carried on by so many young people in the Hammersmith Sonnet Group and the Chiswick audience certainly enjoyed and appreciated the occasion.
