National Poetry Day founder William Sieghart gathers wise and winning words from Kipling's classic ode to keep calm and carry on ("If you can keep your head when all about you / Are losing theirs") to Maya Angelou's phenomenally rousing poem: "Still I Rise". This hardback anthology is full of poetry to revive and re-invigorate the troubled soul.
EMERGENCY POET: ANTI STRESS ANTHOLOGY
A carefully compiled anti-stress anthology by Deborah Alma, the world's first emergency poet who prescribes poems to cure stress, depression and other anxieties. This powerful range of verse, new and old, will be a comfort to all those in need of a pick-me-up poem, a glimmer of hope and extra courage.
Thinking of our global poetry community, we hope you're all staying safe and reading plenty of poetry books.
Here is Wild Geese by Mary Oliver from Essential Poems: Staying Alive Trilogy to remind you "meanwhile the world goes on".
