Poems of Gratitude, Hardback Book


For centuries poets in all the world's cultures have offered eloquent thanks and praise for the earth and its people.

Both an emotion and a conscious practice, gratitude is a cherishing of what is over what has been or could be.

It celebrates the joy in our lives while acknowledging the sorrows and losses that give that joy its keenness.

The voices collected here range from Horace to Herrick, from Wordsworth and Keats, Yeats and Frost, to Czeslaw Milosz, Constantine Cavafy, Primo Levi, Langston Hughes, Anne Sexton, Nikki Giovanni, and many many more.

Devotional lyrics drawn from the major religious traditions offer their perspectives, alongside poetic tributes to autumn and the harvest season that draw our attention to nature's bounty and poignant beauty as winter approaches.
