Perfect for Valentine’s Day:<br>a gorgeous garden of poems

Published on Friday 21 January 2022

There’s a fragrant, peachy-yellow rose called ‘poetry in motion’ – proof (if needed) of poetry’s love affair with this most sumptuous of flowers.

Our gorgeous mini-anthology contains all manner of roses. You’ll find a climbing rose that longs for another life, a meditation on the simple pleasure of tending roses and helping them to grow, together with a lyrical paean to the essence of the flower itself in all its scented, luscious-petalled glory.

This selection of rose poems makes a beautiful little garden that will offer delight in every season of the year.
