New Forms (3): The Epulaeryu

Croeso! / Welcome!

Entrance to the Mumbles Pier in Swansea,
home town of Dylan Thomas

About the Epulaeryu form:

The word (and concept of) Epulaeryu is explained here. The form was invented by Joseph S. Spence, Sr.

My example:

Wilda Morris of the Illinois State Poetry Society in the USA informed me that one of my Epulaeryu poems, Seaweed from the Home of Dylan Thomas, was on display alongside other 'Food Poems' in the Lisle Public Library from 27 March 2010.

My poem is about laverbread, a local Swansea speciality. Its chief ingredient is seaweed (porphyra umbilcalis). It can be bought in Swansea market in small plastic bags. Many people like to fry it - sometimes with bacon - for breakfast. I have tasted it once so far, and would happily try it again.
