Lines 6 and 11 Found! February 15, 2010

Posted by huntthepoem in find.

The mighty Margaret Forrest has done it again, bringing in Line 6 and then Line 11 to the Poetry Library in one day.

Margaret put herself in the picture to rub shoulders with the poets of the past, constructing her own trail of photographs. She eventually tracked down modern poets Nick MacDonald and Willie Gibson to assemble Line 6.

Raised bairns in the shade o the speaking house;

Line 11 was all about communication. Margaret needed help from her mother Catherine Petzsch and her husband Ian Forrest to solve a crossword with one clue missing. This led her to pull a missing line literally out of the air.

So carry my poem, lass, carry it on,

You can still hunt line 6 or line 11 yourself for fun, but the prizes have gone! Try another line instead?
