Book Description

Aug 2001
A diverse range of poets have lent their voices to this collection, including Philip Larkin, Derek Walcott, Eleanor Farjeon and Carol Freeman. Each offers us a new and unexpected way of perceiving time, be it through the seasons, the cycle of life marked by anniversaries and personal milestones, or the simple comfort of daily rituals. The result is an inspiring compilation that will fill your head with new ideas about our collective journey through the minutes, hours, days and years of our lives. Giovanni Manna's sunny watercolour artwork adds a human dimension to the poems, introducing an enchanting cast of characters who capture a complexity of emotions.
