The Gathering – Collected Poems

People, places, things and ideas dominate this collection of poems from Valerie Mendes whose first offerings were published when she was six years old.

Here is her choice of her Top Seventy poems. They take us from her London childhood to her years spent in Oxford and Woodstock, with a special section about birds in woods, farms and on the coast, to others dedicated to the gardens surrounding Blenheim Palace and the special magic of Oxfordshire’s Wytham Woods.

Polished and shining, pithy and true, read these delightful poems in a summer garden or by a winter’s fire to inspire your spirit and to warm your heart.
