Poetry

Poet-treeFrom an original idea by Bree Forsyth and Elaine Pearson

For those studying IGCSE Literature, and in particular the poems from the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries, the poets on the leaves may be familiar.

Check out one of our latest books On Poetry by Glyn Maxwell described by Adam Newey, Guardian as “a tremendously good book….the best book about poetry I’ve ever read”.

This is one of my favourite trees.

The Falling Of The Leaves

AUTUMN is over the long leaves that love us,
And over the mice in the barley sheaves;
Yellow the leaves of the rowan above us,
And yellow the wet wild-strawberry leaves.


The hour of the waning of love has beset us,
And weary and worn are our sad souls now;
Let us patt, ere the season of passion forget us,
With a kiss and a tear on thy drooping brow.

William Butler Yeats
