Poems to celebrate the winter season.
A wonderful bedside companion for a frosty winter's evening, with poems to immerse yourself in the season. From William Shakespeare to John Keats to Katherine Mansfield, the finest poets that ever put pen to paper describe this beautiful and sometimes terrible season.
With one entry for every day through winter, from 1st December until 28th or 29th February, this is the ideal book to take you through the darker months and find joy and comfort in nature.
In December 'Gaunt in gloom' begins James Joyce's 'Nightpiece'. In January, there's a 'certain slant of light for Emily Dickinson, while 'the dull dead wind is out of tune' for Oscar Wilde. And in February, the last month of meteorological winter, William Morris muses 'From this chill thaw to dream of blossomed May'.
This beautiful and collectable anthology of poems derives from the popular A Poem for Every Night of the Year and also features wintry poems by Alice Oswald, Edward Lear, Emily Bronte, William Wordsworth, Ted Hughes and many more.
