I love to see people win! I support everyone!✌
Congrats @a_disillusioned_optimist
Keep up the great work! 💪
In her words 👇
.
The date I set for myself to have this poetry anthology completed, formatted, and designed was June 18th.
•
I am happy to announce that "of sunshine and shadows" has officially been approved for sale on Amazon and {self}published through Kindle Direct Publishing TODAY, 6 days ahead of schedule. Yay!
•
If you're interested in checking out this collection, I've provided the link below and it is in my bio⤵️
https://www.amazon.com/dp/1072861534/
•
The major theme in this collection deals with the "duality" of life:
the dark and light
the shadows and sunshine
the not so pretty and the pretty
and how they can all co-exist in harmony in such a way that simultaneously provides perspective and disillusionment.
•
In learning to embrace all the pieces that make us the people we are, we can find both peace and this sense of harmony.
•
I came to this realization after I left a toxic situation, which is reflected on throughout the anthology. Through the negative experiences, we are able to appreciate the positive all the more.

{Never have we longed for peace as we do now, when war has become an obscene horror worse than any imaginable storm, and noise and confusion so invade cities and homes that we are in danger of having our very minds and souls battered to a uniform pulp. 
But in our much greater need to return to the same sources of peace as our forefathers did: to Janus-faced nature when it is her tranquil smile she turns to us and not her frown, to painting or gardening or whatever creative work brings us self-forgetfulness, to fire-lit homes and all the human love and friendship they stand for. And to the peace of the eternal mystery.} .
Elizabeth Goudge, from her preface to ‘A Book of Peace’, 1967 🕊
.
.

Elizabeth compiled four anthologies, this one being the third. It includes a tremendous amount of poetry which Elizabeth chose from various sources. In it you will find Chaucer and Chesterton, Hardy and Hopkins, Kipling and Lewis, Muir and Rilke, Sydney and Shakespeare. It’s truly a treasure trove! I’ve only just begun it, but I can tell already that it’s going to be a journey that I’ll not want to rush - or miss. 📖💙☺️

The unbound proof of my little book arrived from the publisher in the mail today - out in August. It's a light little book; just 50 poems. But took 8 years and hundred of works in the bin to essence the hell out of it. The effort that's gone into it feels like the thing should weigh like a brick, but as it is, could easily be blown away in the wind... and i guess as it should! Looking forward to sharing it in 6 weeks! Pre orders available soon.

Dark brown is the river,
Golden is the sand.
It flows along forever,
With trees on either hand.
.
Green leaves a-floating,
Castles of the foam,
Boats of mine a-boating —
Where will all come home?
.
On goes the river
And out past the mill,
Away down the valley,
Away down the hill.
.
Away down the river,
A hundred miles or more,
Other little children
Shall bring my boats ashore.
.
Our #NaturePoemoftheWeek is Where Go The Boats, by Robert Louis Stevenson!

Published in collaboration with the @nationaltrust, beautifully illustrated by @frann.pg, and with poems selected by Fiona Waters, I Am the Seed That Grew the Tree is a lavishly illustrated collection of 366 nature poems – one for every day of the year, including leap years. 🌱 🌿 🌳⠀

I really had to search my phone for a positive piece lately! 😬✨ This special piece is from January & it’s featured in the @papeachupress Summer Review! 🍑 I’ll be reading at the release party NEXT THURSDAY, June 27.  This piece is a tribute to some of the wonderful women I’ve met on this platform and I’m so proud to have it shared in this anthology. Not only will it be available online, but it will be featured in local bookstores and traveling to book fests, so get ready to give Seattle some book love, y’all! 📖🥳💓

Just received a copy of the #solplaatje European Union #poetryanthology with my #sonnetremix #emailtotheancestors paying reverence to the earth who misses the gentle ecological touch of our original African ancestors shown here through the cosmic poet and shaman //Kabbo and they published my isiZulu lullaby form of my Marikana poem, ‘Mfowethu, The rockdriller is not dead’. I cried buckets working on that poem and dedicated it to the “34 silent birds” who fell dead from the tree. Now I can’t wait to read my fellow South African poets poems! And seeing my full birth name is always weird ha ha it’s far too long! #poetry #poems #poets #southafricanpoetry #southafricanpoets #southafricanpoet #sonnet #sonnets #marikana #marikanamassacre  #//Kabbo #kabbo #khoipoetry #khoisan

Sharing one of my most favourite poems from 'Seasons', highly close to my heart and loved by everyone I know who's read the book and got back with feedback to me.
🌸🌼🌸🌼🌸🌼🌸🌼🌸🌼🌸🌼
Generally as women, we've traditionally been exposed to the notion of being 'protected' by the man that you're in a relationship with - a very socially stereotyped perception of a romantic relationship between the genders. But I guess it's only with  maturity and exposure to existential realities of the world do we realize that how fragile can two people in love actually be. .
💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞
.
I'm sure there will be many who differ, but I've always believed in what's famously said in Anna Karenina - "if it is true that there are as many minds as there are heads, then there are as many kinds of love as there are hearts." .
💫💫💫💫💫💫💫💫💫💫💫💫💫💫💫💫💫 I hope you enjoy reading this poem, the opening verse of Seasons.

The sun has long been set,
The stars are out by twos and threes,
The little birds are piping yet
Among the bushes and trees;
There’s a cuckoo, and one or two thrushes,
And a far-off wind that rushes,
And a sound of water that gushes,
And the cuckoo’s sovereign cry
Fills all the hollow of the sky.
Who would go parading
In London, and masquerading
On such a night of June
With that beautiful soft half-moon,
And all these innocent blisses?
On such a night as this is!

Our #NaturePoemoftheWeek is THE SUN HAS LONG BEEN SET, by Archibald Lampman!

I am so glad to be part of this #anthology of beautiful love poems, it is called #Love #Book/"Szerelmeskönyv". Litera-Túra is currently one of the best online #art magazines and publishers in Hungary.The title of my poem is Missing you/"Hiányzol", I wrote this in Ireland. Yes, I did it, the 21st anthology!!! I want to thank all of you for your part in #myjourney. 💕#adreamcametrue #yesididit #poetryanthology #poetrycommunity #poetscorner #originalpoem

Hiányzol

Fáradtan hull rám az est fénye,
vatta-hajú pára öleli az óceánt,
szívem a derengő öbölbe réved,
szél-citera rezdül a suttogó pusztán.

Árva csillagok halvány ecsetje
platinaszínt fest az éjjel csendjére,
porcelán-emlékek úszó sziluettje
könnycseppet ejt a végtelen leplére.

A valóság karosszékén álmodom,
rőt tincseim távoli öledbe simulnak,
hiányod keserű ízeit kortyolom,
síró szenvedély az alkonyba porlad.

szél-citera rezdül a suttogó pusztán.

Árva csillagok halvány ecsetje
platinaszínt fest az éjjel csendjére,
porcelán-emlékek úszó sziluettje
könnycseppet ejt a végtelen leplére.

A valóság karosszékén álmodom,
rőt tincseim távoli öledbe simulnak,
hiányod keserű ízeit kortyolom,
síró szenvedély az alkonyba porlad.

mocks start tomorrow (now that we're y11 😬) and my first exam is english lit paper 1. i made some flashcards to help! some have key quotes on with little hints to help me remember them on the back, and others have key facts about every character, as well as how they're presented. i also did the similarities and differences of death and hawk roosting (we've been told the theme is nature + some of the other classes have only done those two out of the 4 nature poems, so its obvious one of them will be on the paper). hopefully everything goes well!

One thing we pride ourselves on at Sotheran’s is having books in the best condition. In fact we make a rod for our own backs by having such high standards because we have to turn down so many potentially interesting books on this basis.

Sometimes it’s hard to credit that a book which has been immaculately housed and looks, today, as it did over 100 years ago is actually as old as we claim. For instance this copy of Andrew Lang’s Blue Poetry Book is a first edition of 1891. Or rather it was, because it sold today.

The date I set for myself to have this poetry anthology completed, formatted, and designed was June 18th.
•
I am happy to announce that "of sunshine and shadows" has officially been approved for sale on Amazon and {self}published through Kindle Direct Publishing TODAY, 6 days ahead of schedule. Yay!
•
If you're interested in checking out this collection, I've provided the link below and it is in my bio⤵️
https://www.amazon.com/dp/1072861534/
•
The major theme in this collection deals with the "duality" of life:
the dark and light
the shadows and sunshine
the not so pretty and the pretty
and how they can all co-exist in harmony in such a way that simultaneously provides perspective and disillusionment.
•
In learning to embrace all the pieces that make us the people we are, we can find both peace and this sense of harmony.
•
I came to this realization after I left a toxic situation, which is reflected on throughout the anthology. Through the negative experiences, we are able to appreciate the positive all the more.

Edgar Allan Poe’s spooky raven enters the narrator’s house, perches on a bust above his chamber door, and repeats only one word, “nevermore.” The narrator soon learns the raven has come to stay and that he’ll never be free of longing for his lost love, Lenore.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When Poe was writing "The Raven," his wife, Virginia, was suffering from tuberculosis. It was a weird marriage—Virginia was Poe’s first cousin and only 13 years old when they married—but there’s no doubt that Poe loved her deeply. Having lost his mother, brother, and foster mother to tuberculosis, he knew the toll the disease would take. "The Raven" is a poem written by a man who’d lost many loved ones, and was soon expecting to lose one more.

The makings of “me.” You know why I love writing?  Because I LOVE READING!  Throuout the years, I’ve lost loves, furniture, entire businesses, and damn near my sanity, but I’ve managed to hang onto my library (Movers hate me lol). Take the time to read something you normally wouldn’t pick up—your life is made of your mini-philosophies, and you can’t cultivate good ones without taking in everything you possibly can!  I placed these next to the throne, and noticed my guests use the bathroom just a little longer than necessary 😂📚#readmorebooks #philosophy #ginsburg #bobdylan #blacklit #study #poetryanthology #basketofbooks #bathroomreading #robertfrost #eecummings #yeats #knowledgeispower #detroitloft #bookcollection #read #langstonhughes #webdubois #malcomx #philosophy #books #baskets #poets

How still it is here in the woods. The trees
Stand motionless, as if they do not dare
To stir, lest it should break the spell. The air
Hangs quiet as spaces in a marble frieze.
Even this little brook, that runs at ease,
Whispering and gurgling in its knotted bed,
Seems but to deepen with its curling thread
Of sound the shadowy sun-pierced silences.
.
Sometimes a hawk screams or a woodpecker
Startles the stillness from its fixèd mood
With his loud careless tap. Sometimes I hear
The dreamy white-throat from some far-off tree
Pipe slowly on the listening solitude
His five pure notes succeeding pensively.
.
Our #NaturePoemoftheWeek is Solitude, by Archibald Lampman. Listen to it read aloud by Samantha Bond at our website for I Am The Seed That Grew The Tree: A Nature Poem For Every Day Of The Year.🌲
.⠀
Published in collaboration with the @nationaltrust, beautifully illustrated by @frann.pg, and with poems selected by Fiona Waters, I Am the Seed That Grew the Tree is a lavishly illustrated collection of 366 nature poems – one for every day of the year, including leap years. 🌱 🌿 🌳⠀

What better way to celebrate Orange County poetry than with an entire anthology of OC Poets? Check out CARVING IN BONE from @moontidepress. It’s a collection every OC Poet should add to their shelf! Catch a snippet of its review below or visit www.moontidepress.com to read the whole piece on their blog.
• • •
“CARVING IN BONE is a deliciously addictive and entertaining piece of art that literally leaves its mark in you (no pun intended). What I love most about this anthology is the way that every genre possible can be found, from erotica to comedy to drama to nostalgia, and watching them come together so perfectly. Every poet, whether just starting out or a seasoned writer, crafted something to move the readers. From the ache of a lost lover to the joys of reminiscing over the first time with a brownie, everyone will find more than one piece that resonates.” — @lady_narrator

{Never have we longed for peace as we do now, when war has become an obscene horror worse than any imaginable storm, and noise and confusion so invade cities and homes that we are in danger of having our very minds and souls battered to a uniform pulp. 
But in our much greater need to return to the same sources of peace as our forefathers did: to Janus-faced nature when it is her tranquil smile she turns to us and not her frown, to painting or gardening or whatever creative work brings us self-forgetfulness, to fire-lit homes and all the human love and friendship they stand for. And to the peace of the eternal mystery.} .
Elizabeth Goudge, from her preface to ‘A Book of Peace’, 1967 🕊
.
.

Elizabeth compiled four anthologies, this one being the third. It includes a tremendous amount of poetry which Elizabeth chose from various sources. In it you will find Chaucer and Chesterton, Hardy and Hopkins, Kipling and Lewis, Muir and Rilke, Sydney and Shakespeare. It’s truly a treasure trove! I’ve only just begun it, but I can tell already that it’s going to be a journey that I’ll not want to rush - or miss. 📖💙☺️

We’ve been loving this poetry collection curated by the late Paul Janeczko (who apparently has curated other anthologies for children/youth-has anyone read his others) and beautifully illustrated by Richard Jones (@apaintedmouse). Like any anthology worth it’s salt, it’s a fabulous collection of the ‘greats’ both classic (Christina Rossetti, Robert Louis Stevenson) and modern (Kwame Alexander, Margarita Engle. The poems are accessible for kids ages 6 and up to hear but also read aloud themselves. One son chose to read three aloud from this collection for our #poetryslam tonight. This is due back to the library soon but I have it on my list to buy it is that good. Here’s an inside peek and you can see the parfaits I made tonight as well-because poetry is all the more sweet with a treat, no? 🤓📚🍨 Published by @candlewickpress #livingbythepage_poetry

To what purpose, April, do you return again? 
Beauty is not enough. 
You can no longer quiet me with the redness 
Of little leaves opening stickily. 
I know what I know. 
The sun is hot on my neck as I observe 
The spikes of the crocus. 
The smell of the earth is good. 
It is apparent that there is no death. 
But what does that signify? 
Not only under ground are the brains of men 
Eaten by maggots. 
Life in itself 
Is nothing, 
An empty cup, a flight of uncarpeted stairs. 
It is not enough that yearly, down this hill, 
April 
Comes like an idiot, babbling and strewing flowers.
~Spring, by Edna St Vincent Millay
.
QOTD- poetry lovers, pray tell; HOW do you read a collection? Do you read in a few sittings? Over the space of a month? A longer period? Do you read in order? I always feel daunted when presented with an anthology, and uncertain how to even approach it. .

Eating buttered toastesses,
Greasing their fistesses,
Up to their wristesses, 
Oh, what beastesses
To make such feastesses!
👻👻👻Three Ghostesses, from The Random House Book of Poetry for Children, illustrated by Arnold Lobel, 1983

I've been dipping into this utterly charming poetry anthology quite a lot lately (there are some lovely poems on snowdrops which are particularly apt for these late winter days). I've always loved daily poetry collections, and this one is especially good, I think. Side note: do you also immediately turn to your birthday and read what poem marks the day? I've got a poem about a snail for mine.... 😒🐌

The last #whitebooks post and I’ve let a little colour in to both the left and the right of my small collection of Everyman Pocket Poets. These poetry anthologies are my favourites at the moment and I aim to collect them all (via other bookshops rather than on line) Their wrappers are delightfully and appropriately designed with patterns, paintings, photographs or collage and the cloth boards underneath are very elegant. Does anyone have the complete set ? How many are there?
