96 pages, 50 colour illustrations
A rich collection of poetry that celebrates the beauty and symbolism of flowers. Ode to Flowers is beautifully illustrated with nostalgic illustrations of a range of beautiful blooms, Ode to Flowers includes a diverse range of poems. From verses celebrating the beginning of spring with the emergence of the snowdrops, daffodils, and bluebells to poems that honour the summer colour of asters, the heady scent of jasmine, and the brazen sunflower.
Almost all the classic poets are included, Shakespeare and Chaucer through Coleridge, Tennyson, Thomas Hardy, Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson to Seamus Heaney. Plus a range of rich poetry from less-famous names but which have stood the test of time and remind us of nature's true beauty.
