Poetry Instead of a Card - Ten Poems about Dogs

Instead of a card, why not send words! This pamphlet pays tribute to man’s – and woman’s – best friend. Introduced by much-loved broadcaster and author Dame Jenni Murray, the poems reveal the great affection people feel for their dogs (and dogs for their owners). In amongst alternately poignant and hilarious accounts of dog-ownership, are some slightly unsociable aspects, like the neighbours’ dog in Billy Collins’ poem, which barks loud and long every time they go out…The pamphlet is richly illustrated by Beth Krommes with poems written by Ogden Nash, Billy Collins, Linda Pastan, Siegfried Sassoon, Andrew Barton (Banjo) Paterson, Paul Yandle, Susan Hamlyn, Stevie Smith, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and George Gordon (Lord) Byron.
