Description

This is a reflective and beautifully put-together anthology of poems to stimulate the emotions, whether evoking the comforting silence of true friendship, the thrill of sea tempests in the night, the power of hunger, or the joy of the first stirrings of love. Divided into seven themed sections (mystery, animals, childhood, people, scene, war, and love), it includes many classics by authors such as Walter de la Mare, G.K. Chesterton, Dylan Thomas, Ogden Nash, Michael Rosen, Eleanor Farjeon, T.S. Eliot, W.H. Auden, E.E. Cummings, Roger McGough, and Philip Larkin.show more
