Description

Please note: the paperback edition of this title is currently out of stock, but still available through Amazon, or on order from your local bookstore! You can still order the ebook version direct from Frith Books, and we should have signed paperbacks in stock soon.

This collaboration between poet Gill Kingsland and wildlife photographer and naturalist John Howells celebrates the unfurling wonder of the natural world in spring.

The poems and photography in Colours of Spring were exhibited together at The National Trust’s Killerton House in Broadclyst, Devon, in April 2016, and are presented here for the first time in book form,  with never-seen-before supplementary images and free verse pieces.

Colours of Spring examines the tiny details of nature – the blooming of a petal, the light falling across a landscape – and unites beautiful images with short poems and fragments of perception reminiscent of the approach found in the mindfulness movement.

So, take a journey through the season, and experience the Colours of Spring for yourself. You can also buy archival quality posters, cards, and other great gifts from this collection through our Zazzle store.

THE STAG

In the forest, of the forest
Head held high
As around the trees bow and sigh
And small creatures use him as climbing frame home or host
Willow-woven
Hazel framed
Forever still, forever poised
Held with the pride
Of Every Stag
Watching over
Every Doe
Every Fawn
Every seasonal bride.
The Stag.



WHITE MAGNOLIA

With tangled purity,
Still wearing a wedding dress
That is less
Pristine
Now that it has seen
The party
Magnolia
Reaches out
To take the next step
Another whirl about
The dance floor
Before
Life is reaffirmed and recreated.
