(1 review) Write a Review

A Poem For Every Night of the Year is a magnificent collection of 366 poems compiled by Allie Esiri, one to share for every night of the year. The poems - together with introductory paragraphs - have a link to the date on which they appear. Shakespeare celebrates midsummer night, Maya Angelou International Women's Day and Lewis Carroll April Fool's day. Perfect for reading aloud and sharing with all the family, it contains a full spectrum of poetry from familiar favourites to exciting contemporary voices. Alfred, Lord Tennyson, W. B. Yeats, A. A. Milne and Christina Rossetti sit alongside Roger McGough, Carol Ann Duffy and Benjamin Zephaniah.

It will take you on a journey through history and the seasons, and tells of festivals and traditions from many different countries, cultures and religions. This inspirational collection will keep you company every night of your life.

    Posted by linda on 25th Jan 2021

    I bought this book for my Mum for her to read during lockdown. It is a beautifully presented book and a lovely idea to have a poem for each night. She is very happy with it.
