A Poem for Every Night of the Year
A Poem for Every Night of the Year | Allie Esiri
13 posts | 5 read | 2 reading | 40 to read
A Poem For Every Night of the Year is a magnificent collection of 366 poems compiled by Allie Esiri, one to share for every night of the year. The poems - together with introductory paragraphs - have a link to the date on which they appear. Shakespeare celebrates midsummer night, Maya Angelou International Women's Day and Lewis Carroll April Fool's day. Perfect for reading aloud and sharing with all the family, it contains a full spectrum of poetry from familiar favourites to exciting contemporary voices. Alfred, Lord Tennyson, W. B. Yeats, A. A. Milne and Christina Rossetti sit alongside Roger McGough, Carol Ann Duffy and Benjamin Zephaniah.

This book... not only is it beautiful, but the poem for 4th November, the anniversary of the death of Wilfred Owen, is Dulce Et Decorum Est. Such a powerful poem....

Every year both of my children get a book that coincides with their birthday. This is Florence‘s book for 2018. I love the idea of reading a poem every night before bed. I think the pages could have been a better quality and would have loved more illustrations but the small blurbs about each poem are excellent.

These two are projects that will keep me going, one for months, the other for the whole year. Anyone else got any longer term projects going?

Loved this beautiful book!
Takes you on a journey through history, seasons, tells of festivals and traditions from different countries, cultures, and religions. Even poems including historical events. Each poem includes an introductory paragraph as well.
Some of the poets featured are Shakespeare, Angelou, Carroll, Yeats, A.A. Milne, Carol Anne Duffy and many more.
I didnt love every poem but most I did. Great way to add poetry to your day.

I'm excited to catch up on the past two months worth of poems and then add the nightly routine of reading a poem ❤

#bookishresolutions I have a few for the coming year. Mainly, I want to read more poetry and have this book that has a poem for each day of the year. Also, I have a lot of unread books on my shelf and on my Kindle, so I want to put more effort into reading those, so I'll limit book buys and the number I check out from the library. Finally, I'm excited to start my new reading log for 2017. #readjanuary

My best boy received this for Christmas, and I'm going to do my best to read a poem to him and his big sister every night of 2017.

Such a beautiful poetry book and a little something for everyday! I found today's entry particularly perfect- the Hogwart's sorting song! 😊😊😊

MrBook Oh my, *love* that cover! 3y
Laura317 I could really get into that. I'm not much of a poetry reader. Maybe this would get my toe wet. 3y
TheLondonBookworm @MrBook soo pretty!!! :) 3y
