Ten Poems for a picnic gift book


Small gift book Ten Poems for a picnic by Candlestick Press could be sent instead of a greeting card with the bookmark left blank for your own message. Contains a 20 page poetry book, bookmark and envelope.

Lazing on a picnic rug under a clear blue sky, what could be more lovely than reading poetry? These ten poems have been selected to provide a perfect accompaniment to an open-air feast; some capture culinary delights such as strawberry tarts and custard while others have been chosen to add to the mood of carefree bliss that only a picnic on a summer’s day can offer.

From Jeremy Hooker’s thoughts while blackberrying to the quiet joy of being in a park with squirrels and daffodils in March, we are transported to enchanted times and places where day-to-day routines seem to have been suspended:

“In a little rainy mist of white and grey we sat under an old tree, drank tea toasts to the powdery mountain,” from ‘The Picnic’ by Edwin Morgan

Whether read alone or to a friend or lover, these beautiful poems make ideal companions for a cucumber sandwich and a glass of fizz.
