This anthology contains a curated selection of 366 poems from various countries and time periods, specifically chosen for the purpose of being read aloud. Each day of the year is represented by a beautiful poem.
Experience the benefits of reading aloud with A Poem To Read Aloud Every Day Of The Year. Whether it's a cosy bedtime story with family, an intimate moment with a loved one, or a performance to a group, a poet’s words hold even more power and meaning when spoken. In addition, practicing mindful reading aloud can aid in relaxation, improve working memory, and enhance vocabulary. Discover the advantages for yourself with this captivating collection.
With a wide and diverse range of poets including the 14th-century Persian poet Hafiz and Mary Oliver in the 21st century, old favourites such as Emily Dickinson and Samuel Taylor Coleridge to more recent voices such as Lemn Sissay, the obvious classics such as Wordsworth’s Daffodils and slightly more offbeat fare like Spike Milligan, there's something for everyone in this book: poems that are funny, sad, consoling, uplifting and everything in between. If there are any particular favourites you wish to return to there is a Poet's Index provided at the end of this anthology for ease of exploration.
It's the perfect book to dip into daily to share a poem with anyone, to hear the true beauty and rhythm of words and the magic they can weave.
