Student writes poem about her experience with the WEA

I really love your courses,

Like poetry and art,

The fantastic Sarah Tamar,

Has shown me where to start.

It’s very fair to say,

I did not know if I would have enough motivation or stamina and anyway a ‘dodgy’ back would get in the way, wouldn’t it?
