Ten Poems of Kindness: Volume Two

This moving anthology of poems about kindness is a second volume which beautifully complements Ten Poems of Kindness, edited by Jackie Kay. These ten poems were successful in our Kindness Poem Competition in association with Fair Saturday Foundation, and they offer a rich variety of experiences and reflections. There's the memory of a school teacher who didn't like to cross out his students' mistakes, and a fleeting encounter with a pigeon which calls forth feelings of empathy for a fellow living creature: Be kind, and respect its expectations it flew through clouds of jewels to you, powdered sapphire blue, mists of rubies. from 'Be Kind to Pigeons' by Paul McDonald. The poems remind us that kindness comes in all shapes and sizes and is often a gesture so small that it takes a poem to hold and keep its meaning. Poems by Jane Burn, Jennifer Clark, Michelle Diaz, Louise Greig, HM Truscott, Chitra Kalyani, Paul McDonald, Phoebe Robertshaw, Ali Rowland and Frances Thompson. Includes one poetry pamphlet, envelope and co-ordinating bookmark with space for your own personal message.
