For the Love of Trees – Poetry Event

Friday 7th June 2pm


Janie Hextall and Barbara McNaught share readings from their latest anthology of poetry about woods, trees and orchards. Trees are all around us, taken for granted, marking the seasons, and forming the backdrop to our daily lives. Who hasn’t got a favourite tree? Who hasn’t planted a tree? Climbed a tree? Sat in the shade of a tree? Picked up a conker? Who hasn’t walked happily through a wood? As Ralph Waldo Emerson says ‘The wonder is that we can see these trees and not wonder more’ Here are poems that reflect that wonder. A wonder that we feel and want to share.
