Our February poems leaflet published in 2020 and distributed from at London Underground stations includes some personal favourites and reflections on the natural world and the human imagination.
In their highly individual voices, the poets gathered together here all affirm the enduring value of the written word.
We hope readers who have met the poems on the Tube will enjoy them as they return to the printed page.
