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. Spring by tradition begins the renewal both of ourselves and of nature. The very sound of the word suggests impetus and movement and people do seem taken with the notion that the year's journey is about to begin. The days become longer, warmer and the fresh green of new growth begins to show itself. All manner of life start to busy themselves with activities and plans. In this collection of poetry Wordsworth, Browning, Kipling & Yeats are familiar voices to which Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, Daniel Sheehan, Amy Lowell and Christina Rossetti and others bring their words of insight, charm and emotion. It's a rich and rewarding combination.

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..
