There are 200 poems to explore in this collection—poems about love, and war; songs of the sea; tales of magic and adventure; rhythmic rhapsodies; nonsense verse; descriptions of the world (and the creatures in it), and of the seasons, and the soul.

Many of the poems here will be familiar to you already. We have ransacked the common treasure hoard of “classics”, collecting those best-known, and best-loved masterpieces that have long stood the test of time. But we have also explored further beneath the mountain, and unearthed some rarer gems.

You may enter the collection through the front door if you wish; the very first poem provides a key. But do not feel compelled to proceed directly forward. Those readers who best explore a collection of verse, do so as though in possession of map which, while appearing to guide their footsteps, is revealed on closer inspection to be a perfect and absolute blank.

This book is organized thematically, with 10 poems for each of the following 20 themes:

  1. Magic and Wonder
  2. Animalia: Mammals
  3. Animalia: Birds
  4. Animalia: Creep, Crawl, and Fly
  5. Love and Friendship
  6. War and Conflict
  7. The Natural World
  8. Life and Inspiration
  9. Sadness and Remembrance
  10. Journeys and Adventures
  11. Tales and Songs
  12. Songs of the Sea
  13. Reflecting on Things
  14. Humour and Curiosities
  15. Nonsense
  16. Miniatures
  17. Stars, Moon, and Night
  18. Sleep, Dreams, and Lullabies
  19. The Year Round; Spring and Summer
  20. The Year Round; Autumn and Winter
