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.
