Poets Corner

During our Discoverers’ October 2022 half-term history trail, Poets’ Corner in Pembroke Lodge Gardens, came to life when poems were found on seats, on bushes, on trees and children shared them with each other and with their families.  One poem in particular was loved by all and it was that of Joseph Coelho, entitled ‘Richmond Park’.

Richmond Park

It’s as simple as that, ‘Richmond Park’ is the title of the children’s poem written by Joseph Coelho and published in his 2017 anthology entitled ‘Overheard in a Tower Block’.

Joseph Coelho is the current Children’s Laureate and he grew up in Roehampton, very close to Richmond Park.
