This is an English book.
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.
