Just a Few Words

Into the Forest  An Anthology of Tree Poems


Editor: Mandy Haggith.  The editor has donated all royalties to Trees for Life.  The book is published by Saraband, 2013.  ISBN: 978-19086-4318-6.

 An unusual book of poetry that uses the Gaelic Tree alphabet, the Ogham, for the sequence of over 200 poems, ranging from Robert Burns to Robert Frost, Seamus Heaney to DH Lawrence.  The book has been on my desk and read daily ever since I bought it last December; an exciting mixture of old and new, and I just can’t put it down!  It is a wonderfully tactile book with fabulous cover artwork by Carry Akroyd and beautifully drawn internal artwork by Kate Cranney.

 A book of vital words and images!
