International Women's Day: 'Conversations With Grandma' By Raymond Antrobus Poetry Video

In this touching tribute to one of the important women in his life, spoken word poet Raymond Antrobus tells the story of a conversation he has with his grandmother as she reflects on her past and the lessons she has learnt in life.

It's a simply told lesson in the value of paying attention to those who are older than us, and a great poem to celebrate International Women's Day.

'Conversations With Grandma' is a new poem by London-based Raymond, who we featured recently in an original recording for Valentine's Day.

Raymond is a founding member of poetry collective Chill Pill and runs his own website devoted to spoken word. He also tweets at @RaymondAntrobus.
