Random YouTube Find: Rhian Edwards

In an unusual juxtaposition of work (my ‘real’ life) and poetry (my semi-secret life), I was looking for a YouTube video to use as a test of embedding such videos into some web pages at work. This was for a research project which is all about poetry. So naturally, rather than just slapping any old video in for my test, I decided to do a quick search for something vaguely relevant and I found this poetry reading by Rhian Edwards … which I enjoyed very much while testing – so much so I thought I’d share it with you all.
