Candlestick Press Poetry Almanac 2023


SKU: candlestick-press-poetry-almanac-2023 Category: Tag:


Our founder Rae Howells has a poem included in this gorgeous pamphlet, a poetry almanac published by Candlestick Press.

Inside its covers you’ll find a poem for every month of the year, opening with a cat and closing with a cockerel, whose strutting step is a measure of daylight.

Rae’s poem captures the repetitive call of the song thrush in February, while September echoes to the endless chant of insects in the grass – an elegy for the end of summer. June brings a celebration of indolence and outdoor delights.

“see I am a creature of pleasure
of soft pyjamas and languid reading and wild
river swimming and strawberry-seeking…”

from ‘ode to june’ by Laura Theis

These twelve poems will keep you company from January to December, celebrating the changing seasons and finding beauty in all manner of things, from mud to fresh cherries.

Poems by Sam Goundry Butler, Emily Dickinson, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Victoria Gatehouse, Rae Howells, Liz Kendall, DH Lawrence, Robert Louis Stevenson, Sara Teasdale, Laura Theis, Edward Thomas and Sarah Ziman.
