National Poetry Day is on Thursday 3 October 2019: the theme is Truth. We have chosen some poems relating to this theme, but you’ll probably want more. National Poetry Day’s new anthology, Tell Me the Truth About Life, edited by Cerys Matthews features classic and new Truth poems chosen by a huge range of people – from astronauts to Olympic rowers, from comedians to criminologists, from Carol Ann Duffy to Michael Morpurgo – with accompanying podcast here.
