In Memoriam: Thirty Poems of Bereavement

This offers a real alternative to a ‘With sympathy’ card for people who have been recently bereaved. The poems in this collection, a mix of traditional and contemporary, have been chosen for their clarity and beauty and in the hope that they might offer consolation to the bereaved and also be helpful for people arranging a funeral. Shared in public or read in private, poetry can put its arms around us all.

This second edition of the title includes poems by WH Auden, Laurence Binyon, Robert Burns, Catullus, Billy Collins, Wendy Cope, Emily Dickinson, Sasha Dugdale, Paul Durcan, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Lorna Goodison, Thomas Gray, Matthew Hollis, Jackie Kay, Faith Lawrence, John McCrae, Derek Mahon, Sue Millard, Adrian Mitchell, Peter Porter, Corinne Roosevelt Robinson, Michael Rosen, Christina Rossetti, William Shakespeare, Penelope Shuttle, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Dylan Thomas, Mark Twain and Anna Wigley.

  • Includes one poetry pamphlet, envelope and co-ordinating bookmark with space for your own personal message. 40 pages.
