This treasury of verse rejoices in the pleasures of the countryside and the beauty of the outdoors. Originally published in the mid-19th century, Under Green Leaves offers a wealth of poetry inspired by nature, from lyrics by English dramatists such as William Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, and Beaumont and Fletcher, to works by Metaphysical, Romantic, and Victorian poets.
Dozens of enchanting verses include William Blake's "Piping Down the Valleys Wild," "Ode to a Nightingale" by John Keats, Andrew Marvell's "The Garden," and Thomas Campbell's "To the Evening Star." No compilation of nature poetry would be complete without contributions from William Wordsworth, whose "Lines Written in Early Spring" and "To a Skylark" appear here. Other featured poets include John Milton, Alfred Tennyson, Robert Herrick, George Herbert, Mary Howitt, and many other writers whose meditations on flowers, birds, woodlands, and summer evenings remain ever green.
