Fifty Shades of June (Audiobook)
- +

Read by Richard Mitchley, Eve Karpf & Ghizela Rowe (Unabridged: 1hr 8mins)

Featuring poems by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Hafiz, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Emily Dickinson & others.

The sixth month of the Gregorian calendar heralds a new season – Summer.  Lengthening days, Sunshine days, Glorious days!

In this month our classic poets flex their lexicons with verse that describes all manner of events.  The weather may be warm or windy, showers, squalls and storms may momentarily darken skies with grey foreboding but Nature will soon be at work again on a palette of such bright and dazzling hues that the landscape is reborn again.

From the pens of our remarkable poets including Robert Burns, Amy Lowell, Hafiz, Emily Dickinson, John Clare and a wealth of others comes sumptuous verse from the streets to the countryside, poems that describe our moods, feelings, travels and desires and many another thing.
