A poem about Cardiff's Queen Street to celebrate World Poetry Day

TODAY is world poetry day, so to celebrate why not watch our video of a poem dedicated to Cardiff’s very own Queen Street?
“Queen Street, Cardiff” was written by Idris Davies (1905 — 1953), a poet from Rhymney in the Welsh Valleys, who often wrote about working life in South Wales in the early 20th Century.
Though the poem was written more than half a century ago, it still rings true with its descriptions of the “music of the tills”, and the crowds from suburbs and hills flocking to shop in Cardiff’s busy commercial district.
