The Poetry of Wind and Rain

1 hour


When the wind blows and the rain lashes our emotions can become dulled and our thoughts depressed but sometimes these swirling conditions can excite and invigorate. Whether we shut the door physically or delight in watching nature's displays, we cannot ignore the weather. It’s the natural topic of conversation for the British. Summer breezes and spring showers can elevate our senses bringing a thump to the heart, a grin to the face and an abandon to immerse yourself in nature's ever changing wonders.

For poets these elemental forces that signal change can often inspire. Muses summon themselves and through brain, heart and pen a myriad of expressions are revealed to a poet and capture his thoughts and views upon these transitory natural forms. Within this volume, poets such as Keats, Emily Dickinson, Algernon Charles Swinburne and Amy Lowell speak of wind and rain to storm and hurricane.

This volume comes to you from Portable Poetry, a specialized imprint from Deadtree Publishing. Our range is large and growing and covers single poets, themes, and many compilations.
