In Candlestick Press' Almanac for 2024 you’ll find beautiful poems old and new, chosen to keep you company through the year.

We open with a poem that moves from mud and greyness to a vision of springtime-in-waiting, glimpsed in “a clutch of green spears”. Summer brings strawberries and swims by moonlight, while autumn is full of birds:

“Today I’m noticing wings – a swan
spreads its pinions wide, drinks
late, strange warmth from October skies.”

from ‘Callings’ by Sue Burge

The selection ends with a paean to winter sunshine, and an evening à deux beside an open fire. Poetry can find wonder in all seasons and all weathers, and this mini-anthology will bring delight from January to December.

Poems by Robert Browning, Sue Burge, Josephine Corcoran, Lucy Dixcart, Nicolette Golding, Lucy Ingrams, Stephen Keeler, DH Lawrence, Edna St Vincent Millay, Henrietta Cordelia Ray, Angela Readman and Edward Thomas.
