Ten Poems for Winter - Poetry Pamphlet
- Unit Price
‘Instead of a Card’. Each pamphlet is gorgeous both inside and out. With covers created by leading contemporary artists and poems hand-picked to speak to every kind of reader, all the lovely Poetry Pamphlet titles offer a richly rewarding reading journey.
Each pamphlet comes with an envelope for posting and a bookmark for a special message. Whether you’re choosing for a friend or for yourself, we think you’ll find you’re spoilt for choice.“A greeting that not only gives great pleasure but illuminates our lives – like a message in a bottle” (Robert McCrum, The Observer).
Winter seems to divide opinion more than any other season; we love it or we definitely don’t! The poems in this mini-anthology are guaranteed to delight readers of every persuasion; we encounter muddy walks, ice-skating, cosy fires, chilblains and even a snow pudding.
There’s also a Skype meeting between a child and a grandparent – a poignant reminder that distance from a loved one can mean living in different seasons:
“You hold handfuls of snow to my face, say
‘You can eat it’, your eyes laughing as you gulp it down
and show me red berries on the naked tree, footprints on the icy track.”
from ‘January Skype July’ by Christine Coates
These are poems to curl up with: they relish the season’s rigours, finding warmth and humanity in the midst of darkness and cold.
This title completes our beautiful seasonal quartet, making a sumptuous collection of four spanning the whole year. Each pamphlet – or indeed the complete set – makes an ideal gift for occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries and more…
