colour illustrated end-papers; Gordon Beningfield's previous anthologies of verse - 'The Darkling Thrush', 'Poems of the Countryside' and 'Green and Pleasant Land' - have brought pleasure to innumerable lovers of poetry and the countryside. His latest collection, 'Poems of the Seasons', is a delightful celebration of the glories of the changing year. For country people, the seasons have always had enormous significance, particularly where they are reflected in the traditional farming calendar, but even for those who have no direct contact with the countryside, the natural rhythms of the year touch a deep chord. Poets have for centuries been moved to evoke the new life of Spring, the ripeness of Summer, the rich melancholy of Autumn and the chill of Winter. 'Poems of the Seasons', drawn from writings covering four hundred years, offers a wealth of lyrical gems beautifully complemented by Gordon Beningfield's sensitive watercolours, some of which have been painted especially for this anthology.
