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 season through the eyes and minds of our most gifted poets to bring you a guide to the days within each. At this time of the year as the nights close in and the temperature drops Winter seems like a season that nobody really enjoys and we look forward all the more to Spring. For many children however it is the bounty of Christmas that steals their attention and for others the renewal of the New Year. But for Nature it is pause for breath, to take stock of what has gone by in the year to date and ready herself for the energies and dramatic development to the landscape that Spring will bring. But Winter has its beauty too; the frost or snow covered ground, the grey swell of a winters sea and the bleak yet beautiful imagery of the landscape. Our collection of poems brings together the talents of many best loved poets such as Thomas Hardy, Robert Browning, Emily Dickinson and Emily Jane Brontë who catalogue and celebrate the season and its feelings in unique and telling ways.
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.
