The setting was Greek. The weather was perfect. Thirteen poetry lovers gathered at the historical Beeville courthouse arbor and rose garden on Thursday, Oct. 28, from 6 to 7 p.m., to enjoy poetry and to relax, an interesting and nice contrast to the politics going on inside of the courthouse.

Darren Russell, a talented poet from the faculty of A.C. Jones High School, read poems that he wrote about his daughters; then came his “Canyon,” which depicted a beautiful desert scene with the playful antics of Kokopeli dancing throughout. Megan Gaitan dramatically acted out Shel Silverstein’s poem “The Naptaker.” Christina Perez read her published poem, “A Careless Zookeeper Named Blake.” Kay Russell McBrayer read her usual humorous bone ticklers, and Natalie Arispe read favorite poems from her book “Tidbits from a Lady,” “The Greek in Me” and “The Writing on the Wall.”
