As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
A Nature Poem for Every Day of the Year by Jane Hunter
This book came out in 2018, and it’s one of my favorite books.
In this book, Jane has selected 365 of the most beautiful poems ever written.
“From William Wordsworth’s springtime daffodils and Christina Rossetti’s birdsong to John Keats's autumnal odes and Longfellow’s “Woods in Winter,” these poems pay tribute to the beauty of nature and the changing seasons.
Works from such beloved writers as William Blake, Robert Burns, Emily Dickinson, Ralph Waldo Emerson, John Keats, Amy Lowell, and Shakespeare take you through the year, along with 12 evocative black-and-white line drawings.
Enjoy Thomas Hardy’s “Birds at Winter Nightfall,” Robert Frost’s “Spring Pools,” Rudyard Kipling’s “The Glory of the Garden,” Elizabeth Jennings’s “Song at the Beginning of Autumn,” and many more.”
I carry this beautiful book around in my backpack, and I refer to it all the time.
This book is 496 pages of inspiring poems about the natural world curated for every day of the year.
