The 10 guests who visited the Poetry Café on Sept. 16 at the Joe Barnhart Bee County Library were treated to several favorite poetry excerpts read aloud by numerous participants in the Café.

The readers included Sylvia Castillo, who read an except from William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”; and Megan Winthrop, who read selected children’s poems, including “Autumn Beat,” “To a Maggot in an Apple,” “Harvey,” “10 Little Aliens” and “A Question and an Answer.” Yanet Ybanez read in Spanish, then in English, Felipe Duran’s “Which Flag,” honoring Mexico’s 200-year anniversary of independence.

Seventh-grader Mari Moreno read “Teenagers” and “The Poinsettia.” Sarah Bridge chose “Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe and selections from Shel Silverstein. In closing, Natalie Arispe read selections from her new book “Tidbits from a Lady.”

The next Poetry Café will be held on Oct. 21 at 7 p.m. in the library’s Dougherty Room. Poetry readers and listeners of all ages are welcome to join those attending in this relaxing, cozy atmosphere.
