A Nature Poem for Every Night of the Year

Jane McMorland Hunter

Batsford

Format:

    Category: Poetry

    A calming collection of nature poems to help you relax and unwind at the end of every day. 

    Now more than ever we’re all in need of a daily fix of the natural world, to comfort and distract us from the cares of everyday life. Keep this beautiful book by your bedside and enjoy a dreamy stroll through nature every evening, just before you go to sleep. All the great, time-honoured poets are here – William Wordsworth, John Keats, Emily Dickinson, Robert Bridges – along with some newer and less-well known poetic voices. The poems reflect and celebrate the changing seasons: read Emily Brontë on bluebells in spring and Edward Thomas’s evocative ‘Adlestrop’ in summer, then experience golden autumn with Hartley Coleridge and visit John Clare’s ‘Copse in Winter’. Beautifully illustrated with scenes from each season, this wonderful book deserves a place on your bedside table for years to come.
