Christmas Advent – Day 13 ‘A Poem for Every Winter Day,’ edited by Allie Esiri.

How about giving something a little this Christmas – the gift of poetry. This beautiful volume would be the perfect introduction to the world of poetry for any teenager or adult.

Every day from the 1st December through to the 29th February has at least two poems for readers to enjoy and be inspired by. Some of the poems are traditional and well-known (Edgar Allan Poe, Mary Oliver) whilst other are more contemporary (Joe Cohelo and Benjamin Zephaniah) but all will transport you elsewhere.

Each poem has an introduction and a link to its date – sometimes historical, sometimes other, but it makes for an excellent mix of themes: nature, segregation, polar exploration, the first flight…

A great collection to share or dip into alone during a quiet moment.
