On the occasion of the feast of the Assumption that will be celebrated on Tuesday in Victoria, Gozitan writer, folklorist and poet, Anton F. Attard, has said that he felt the need to publish a booklet containing a collection of his own poems related to the subject.
The poems, written by himself over the years, cover activities of the Leone Philharmonic Society; Our Lady of the Assumption, as well as poems about anniversaries and personalities who worked closely with the Leone Philharmonic Society, Cathedral Church and the Citadel.
The purpose of this collection of poems is that it is a document of historical events, which people can read over and over again, learning them off by heart and remembering them all their lives, remarked Anton F. Attard.
He added that it is also his wish that the booklet be distributed free of charge, along with the programme for the feast which is issued from the Leone Band Club Victoria, on the occasion of the feast of Our Lady of the Assumption celebrated at the Cathedral Church, Gozo.
