Promotional Information

Poetry moves us when we read it but when we say or hear the words aloud it can be spellbinding. From Geoffrey Chaucer to Emily Dickinson, Emily Bronte to Benjamin Zephaniah, the poems included in this treasury have been chosen because they delight the ear as much as they do the mind.
