A rich collection of poetry that celebrates the beauty and symbolism of flowers. Beautifully illustrated with nostalgic illustrations of a range of beautiful blooms, this book includes a diverse range of poems. From verses celebrating the beginning of spring with the emergence of the snowdrops, daffodils, and bluebells to poems that honour the summer colour of asters, the heady scent of jasmine, and the brazen sunflower.

The classic poets are included, including Shakespeare, Tennyson, Thomas Hardy, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson and Seamus Heaney. There’s also range of rich poetry from less-famous names which have stood the test of time and evoke nature’s beauty.
