365 poems celebrating nature and the changing seasons

This is the perfect bedside companion for any nature or poetry fan, featuring famous odes from big-name poets alongside unsung poems from less-well-known writers.

Each poem is chosen to chime with the natural world through the seasons. Spring is a time of hope, a season of new life with William Wordsworth’s daffodils, John Clare’s lambs and Christina Rossetti’s birdsong.

Summer shifts into a time of leisure with long idyllic holidays in the countryside. According to Henry James, the two most beautiful words in the English language were ‘summer afternoon’, a sentiment echoed by Edward Thomas and Emily Dickinson.

John Keats, William Blake and W. H. Auden are the poets we associate with autumn and this is possibly the most poetic season. The natural world, and the human one, hold onto the last lingering memories of summer before they turn to face the oncoming hardships of winter. Amy Lowell and George Meredith perfectly frame this time of year with their silver-fringed leaves and crimson berries. Winter can be savoured in poetry, rather than endured; bleak grey days are transformed into a world of glittering frost and snow-blanketed landscapes. Even in the darkest days life continues and soon we can turn our attention to the rebirth of spring.

A wonderful collection of poems that help mark the daily turn of the seasons and all the rituals marking the significant moments of the year. A beautiful gift for poetry and nature lovers alike.
