about this book

The poetic concern for nature has been, in the words of Anna Akhmatova, "wild in our breast for centuries." Poetry for the Earth collects an astonishing diversity of poetic response to the environment, from eras and places as diverse as classical Greece, Elizabethan England, 17th century Japan, contemporary Africa, and modern America. From haiku and tribal riddles to blank verse, these poems speak anew to a relationship in crisis, propelling us toward appreciation and reflection of the nature and the earth.
