As 2021 unfolds, poetry has never seemed more necessary to us as a source of hope and consolation.
We’ve chosen seasonal poems from earliest times to the present, by poets from England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and across the world, all in their original poster designs. Included are poems on universal themes – life and death, music, flora and fauna, ending with a celebration of Scotland’s national poet, Robert Burns.
We hope you will find our seasonal poems a comforting resource as we move towards brighter days and better times.
