Some favourite poems

In difficult times, poetry seems more necessary than ever, a reminder that we all share common problems, common sources of consolation and joy. We hope you will enjoy the poems reprinted below.  We are featuring a set of Indian poems, with illustrations from David Gentleman’s India (by kind permission of the artist); Caribbean poems by poets with strong links across the West Indies; and Love Poems on a theme of universal appeal, across all times and places.
