As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
A Nature Poem for Every Night of the Year by Jane Hunter
This book came out in 2020, and like the companion book, A Nature Poem for Every Day of the Year, this book is one of my favorites.
In this book, Jane has gathered a beautiful and soothing collection of poetry inspired by the natural world and perfect for bedtime reading.
“Now more than ever, we need something to comfort and distract us from the cares of everyday life.
Keep this beautiful book by your bedside and enjoy a dreamy stroll through the natural world and its wonders every evening, just before you go to sleep.
All the great time-honored poets are here—William Wordsworth, John Keats, Emily Dickinson, Robert Bridges—along with some newer and lesser-known voices. The verses reflect and celebrate the changing seasons: read Emily Brontë on bluebells in spring and Edward Thomas’s evocative “Adlestrop” in summer, and then experience golden autumn with Hartley Coleridge and visit John Clare’s “Copse in Winter.”
Stunningly illustrated with seasonal scenes, this wonderful anthology will delight you for years to come.”
This book is 496 pages of soothing bedtime poetry inspired by the natural world.
