Mailbox Monday #347

Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia at To Be Continued, formerly The Printed Page, has a permanent home at its own blog.

To check out what everyone has received over the last week, visit the blog and check out the links.  Leave yours too.

Also, each week, Leslie, Vicki, and I will share the Books that Caught Our Eye from everyone’s weekly links.

Here’s what I received:

National Geographic Book of Nature Poetry: More than 200 Poems With Photographs That Float, Zoom, and Bloom! by J. Patrick Lewis for review from Media Masters Publicity.

When words in verse are paired with the awesomeness of nature, something magical happens! Beloved former U.S. Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis curates an exhuberant poetic celebration of the natural world in this stellar collection of nature poems. From trickling streams to deafening thrunderstorms to soaring mountains, discover majestic photography perfectly paired with contemporary (such as Billy Collins), classics (such as Robert Frost), and never-before-published works.

    Hi Serena,

    Whilst I don’t read poetry on anything like a regular basis, I do have several books of poetry, which I dip into from time to time.

    As my husband is now reviving his photographic interests, I am also learning to appreciate the value of words and pictures combined, so this might be a nice gift to ourselves 🙂

    Thanks for sharing.


    PS. As of 6am UK time, there is no linky on the MM page, I do hope that everything is okay with you guys 🙂
