At this time of the year, as the nights close in and the temperature drops, winter seems like a season that nobody really enjoys, and we look forward all the more to spring. For many children, however, it is the bounty of Christmas that steals their attention, and for others the renewal of the New Year. But for Nature it is a pause for breath, to take stock of what has gone by in the year to date and ready herself for the energies and dramatic development to the landscape that spring will bring.
But winter has its beauty too; the frost or snow covered ground, the grey swell of a winter sea and the bleak yet beautiful imagery of the landscape.
Our collection of poems brings together the talents of many best beloved poets, such as Thomas Hardy, Robert Browning, Emily Dickinson, Daniel Sheehan, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Emily Bronte.
