This February we celebrate the Chinese New Year with poems featuring original calligraphy by the renowned artist Qu Lei Lei and translations by contemporary poets.
Our February Poems also feature Love poems for Valentine’s Day and poems inviting Social and Political Change.
A new set of poems on love, music, and the coming of spring will be on London Underground trains from February 14th.
We hope tube travellers will enjoy poems by Sasha Dugdale, Derek Walcott, Grace Nichols, Martin Bell and Raymond Antrobus
We are also marking the bicentenary of the death of the Romantic poet P B Shelley with the last stanza of his Ode to the West Wind, with famous lines which speak to all of us: ‘O Wind, If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?’
The poems will be circulating on Underground and Overground trains through February and March.
