Wonder, The Natural History Museum Poetry Book, Ana Sampson, Macmillan.

This is a truly delicious book of poems on the delights you can find within the cavernous chambers of The Natural History Museum, occasionally illustrated with prints from the pages of old books.

I found many poems (poems that have been given space to breathe) I have not read before. I read a lot of nature poems. Excellent poems, poems to make your mouth water, your breath seize, your mind soar, your thoughts fill with wonder. I love the choices Ana Sampson has made.

I have one poem in there and I am very proud of this. Here it is:

Blackbird, by Liz Brownlee, from Wonder, The Natural History Museum Poetry Book, Ana Sampson, Macmillan.

Definitely a book to buy – I would give it more than 5 stars if could!
