Winter seems to divide opinion more than any other season; we love it or we definitely don’t! The poems in this mini-anthology are guaranteed to delight readers of every persuasion; we encounter muddy walks, ice-skating, cosy fires, chilblains and even a snow pudding.

There’s also a Skype meeting between a child and a grandparent – a poignant reminder that distance from a loved one can mean living in different seasons:

“You hold handfuls of snow to my face, say
‘You can eat it’, your eyes laughing as you gulp it
down
and show me red berries on the naked tree,
footprints on the icy track.”

from ‘January Skype July’ by Christine Coates

These are poems to curl up with: they relish the season’s rigours, finding warmth and humanity in the midst of darkness and cold.

This title completes our beautiful seasonal quartet, making a sumptuous collection of four spanning the whole year. Each pamphlet – or indeed the complete set – makes an ideal gift for occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries and more…

Poems by John Clare, Christine Coates, Jane Duran, Robert Hayden, Rhiannon Hooson, Christopher James, Ted Kooser, Ruby Robinson, Rob Walton and Holly Yuille.
