Poetry is a fascinating use of language. With almost a million words at its command it is not surprising that these Isles have produced some of the most beautiful, moving and descriptive verse through the centuries. In this series we look at each calendar month through the eyes and minds of our most gifted poets to bring you a guide to the days within each. This volume of Poetry is all about June—the sixth month of the year in our Gregorian calendar and the official beginning of Summer. The days stretch to their longest and many subjects and thoughts fill the minds of our Poets such as John Keats, Emily Dickinson, John Dryden, Sara Teasdale, Daniel Sheehan, Amy Levy, Alfred Austin and others who paint the month in poetry with masterly grace.

Many of the poems are also available as an audiobook from our sister company Portable Poetry. The full volume can be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores. Among the readers are Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe.
