The mother of dragons is reining over a new kind of empire, one that involves poetry. Former “Game of Thrones” actor Emilia Clarke introduced her partnership with The Poetry Pharmacy to benefit COVID-19 relief on Instagram Wednesday.

“This is just a little introduction video to something that I’ve been kind of putting together over this time,” Clarke said in her Instagram video post. “Now I don’t know what you’ve all been turning to — maybe you could let me know — to ease your soul and to get through this time, but for me — aside from thinking I’m on ‘The Great British Bake Off’ — I have been turning to a lot of poetry.”

The goal is to use poetry to connect with those struggling with feelings of depression and isolation while social distancing, and to spread awareness about “incredible” charities that are helping combat the virus.

“I do hope you enjoy and get to hear about some incredible charities that are doing all they can for those in most need today,” she wrote in the caption accompanying her post.

The Poetry Pharmacy prescribes poems to individuals to help them cope with their emotions. They have teamed up with Clarke’s organization, SameYou, that works to provide more rehabilitation services for those with brain injuries, and will donate profits from its book sales to help her organization during the pandemic.

Clarke said she has found her own form of comfort in reading poems and it gave her an idea.

“I thought as I was reading this how nice it would be to have some talented performers to read these out loud,” she said. “So that’s what I’ve done. I’ve just got a few gloriously kind people to read these poems and I’ve asked each of the readers to dedicate their poem to a charity of their choosing.”

Clarke went on to explain that she will “kick” off the new project by donating to her own charity.

“The people we’ve been helping need our help so much more now,” she said.
