‘O world, I cannot hold thee close enough!’ starts the poem by Edna St Vincent Millay selected by Patrick Stewart. If it’s tearful enough for Captain Picard, then it’s tearful enough for me. Just one of many moving poems that take on even greater resonance in these days of social distancing. As an added tearjerker bonus, Nick Laird selects ‘Dear Bryan Wynter’ by W. S. Graham. An intimately emotional elegy on one of my favourite painters by one of my favourite poets. Read them and weep!
