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 season through the eyes and minds of our most gifted poets to bring you a guide to the days within each. In this volume we embrace the joys of summer as it beckons each and every one of us to its warm embrace. For many of us it is the season we can most enjoy; the days are long and warm and all manner of things become easier. Nature shows us her most colourful side as she fills the landscape with colours and textures of every hue. As for ourselves we all seem a little more approachable, a little more likable. For poets the summer season conjures up many themes and images. John Keats, William Blake, Emily Dickinson, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, take us through many of these facets ably joined by Alice Meynell, Alexander Pope, Henry Van Dyke, Daniel Sheehan, Robert Louis Stevenson and many others.

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.
