Description
Childhood has proven to be an inexhaustible source of inspiration for poets, and these 101 selections show the many different ways it has been immortalized in verse. Here are poems celebrating the wonder of childhood (Dylan Thomas's "Fern Hill"), showing compassion for children (William Blake's "The Chimney Sweeper"), lamenting the passage of youth (Gerard Manley Hopkins's "Spring and Fall"), and praising the boundless potential of young people (William Wordsworth's Ode: Intimations of Immortality and Walt Whitman's "There was a Child went Forth"). Other featured poets include William Shakespeare, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Arthur Rimbaud, Emily Dickinson, Rainer Maria Rilke, Elizabeth Bishop, and C.K. Williams.
