Co-Editor "The Complete Poetry Of Cicely Fox Smith"
Tuesday, August 7
Join Charlie Ipcar as he shares the "life voyage" of
Cicely Fox Smith, an accomplished English maritime poet.
"Her poems beautifully describe, often with wry humor
and wit but always with compassion, the final years of
The Great Age of Sail."
Many well known maritime songwriters have set the poems of C. Fox Smith to music. Ipcar will also be demonstrating how this has been done.
