Description

This delightful collection celebrates motherhood in all its forms. Here you will find all the joy, self-sacrifice, occasional irritation but above all, the intimate tenderness of motherhood - whether evoked in a glimpse of a very human mother or through heroic tales of the great mother goddesses of myth, legend and religion. From Wordsworth to Allan Ahlberg, William Blake to John Betjeman, Elizabeth Barrett Browning to Roald Dahl, William Blake to Anne Ridler, Tennyson to Edith Nesbit - here is a collection of poems which have been taken from the whole range of verse in English, from the Middle Ages to the present day.show more
