I Am the Seed that Grew the Tree


I Am the Seed that Grew the Tree‘ is a perfect collaborative creation. Fiona Waters has selected a unique poem, considering the season, the climate, the natural history of every date. Each work is a weighty selection, one that is truly celebratory, special and inspiring. Every poem is relevant to our natural world.

From Sara Coleridge’s ‘The Garden Year’ to introduce the calendar, to ‘Keep a Poem in Your Pocket‘ by Beatrice Schenk de Regniers to close the year, the poetry is fabulous. It inspires and awes!

Each month opens with its own list of contents. There are three indices, offering poets and lists of first lines, and titles. Everything has been considered.

International poets from different ages are included. I can only guess at how much time the selection process took. Bookwagon sought ‘our’ dates first (as any reader would) to ensure we had the ‘right’ poem to celebrate our birthdays and anniversaries- oh, we do! ‘I Am the Seed that Grew the Tree’ is a proud and mighty, ‘forever’ poetry book that demands to be in homes and schools.
