Description

'We want, we shouted,
To be two, to be ourselves.'

In this vivid poem, Gillian Clarke describes the birth of her eponymous daughter and the 'tight red rope of love' that joins mother and child.

Our lesson plan looks at the antithesis at the heart of the poem, and ends with students pondering the meaning of the name Catrin.
