This collection brings together relaxing and meditative verse from foremost Irish and international modern poets. The poems provide a commentary on the personal and yet universally-felt experiences that shape our lives: love, death, laughter and sorrow, childhood and old age, the natural world and the urban environment, the past and the future. The collection features poems such as: "Love after Love" by Derek Walcott; "Elegy for a Still-born Child" by Seamus Heaney; "On Finding an Old Photograph" by Wendy Cope; "A Summer Night" by W.H. Auden; "The Trees" by Philip Larkin; and "Pad, pad" by Stevie Smith. Plus works by Fleur Adcock, Derek Mahon, Carol Ann Duffy, Paula Meehan, Elizabeth Bishop, Simon Armitage, Eavan Boland, Thomas Kinsella, Adrienne Rich, Charles Causley, Paul Muldoon, and Eilean Ni Chuilleanain among others.
