Season Songs

£10.00

In these poems Ted Hughes invites the reader to try and catch the spring (but she’s elusive); to take a closer look at the March calf; to listen to the happiness of the summer grass; and to notice the ‘weak-neck snowdrops’ in winter. Earth is revealed in all its surprising richness and rawness, and so is humankind’s own constantly changing relationship with the seasons.

Description

Spring will marry you. A promise!
Cuckoo brings the message: May.
O new clothes! O get your house ready!
Expectation keeps you starry.
But at which church and on what day?
