This is the second of three podcast “performances” tied to “this time of the year”: Remembrance Sunday season. All three of them are very beautiful and very moving. They’re beautiful not least because Ruth voices them. Ruth with that infinitely beautiful BBC Radio 4 and actress voice of hers.
They’re taken from ‘War Girls’, Ruth‘s one-woman show about women’s poetry and prose in the First World War. It was made into a recording. Ruth has performed it in venues all over the country.
Three women of genius – four counting Ruth – responding to ‘The Great War.’
This piece is a poem by Sara Teasdale. It’s called There Will Come Soft Rains.
