Relax and unwind at the end of the day with this calming collection of nature poems--one for each night of the year. Now more than ever we need something to comfort and distract us from the cares of everyday life. Keep this beautiful book by your bedside and enjoy a dreamy stroll through the natural world and its wonders every evening, just before you go to sleep. All the great time-honored poets are here--William Wordsworth, John Keats, Emily Dickinson, Robert Bridges--along with some newer and lesser-known voices. The verses reflect and celebrate the changing seasons: read Emily Bront on bluebells in spring and Edward Thomas's evocative "Adlestrop" in summer, and then experience golden autumn with Hartley Coleridge and visit John Clare's "Copse in Winter." Stunningly illustrated with seasonal scenes, this wonderful anthology will delight you for years to come.
