100 Happy Poems

McMorland Hunter, Jane

We can all benefit from a little nugget of happiness to soothe our weary souls in moments of stress, sadness and hardship. 100 Happy Poems provides just that: 100 specially selected and sublimely happy poems to turn to in times of need, from cosy fireside idylls to exhilarating outdoor adventures, encounters with the beauty of nature and moments of quiet reflection.

This pocketful of joy includes uplifting words some of the greatest poets ever to put pen to paper, from William Wordsworth on the thrill of skating and Emily Bronte enjoying life on the moors to Simon Armitage catching a cricket ball and John Gay on the delight of youth, with a good smattering of classic jolly verse such as Edward Lear’s The Owl and the Pussycat.

Beautifully illustrated, this wonderful book is the perfect way to lift your spirits in times of turmoil. Keep it in your pocket, bag or desk drawer for an instant dose of joy when you are in need of a boost.
