For years poets have taken inspiration from nature and revelled in the gift of flowers; this book is a celebration of them. Byron, Shelley, Wordsworth, Burns, Longfellow, and many more voices, arise from the past and tell about their strong connection to the earth and others. They deal with love and its loss, birth and death, sadness and joy, belief and frustration. Take a journey to another time, a time when people were grounded in the terroir of their lands: memories, hopes, dreams, sadness, wildflowers, gardens and tumultuous landscapes, all wound as one. This is a beautiful edition of the book loved by many. It is not an OCR. It was hand-typed, edited and formatted.
