15 Minutes Of Love Poems - Volume 3 Audiobook

15 Minutes Of Love Poems - Volume 3

Author: Robert Burns, Rumi, William Blake Narrator: Richard Mitchley Release Date: May 2020

Love. What is love?The question is asked by each of us but the answer remains elusive. Dictionaries summon up many words but none fulfill. Love itself is often ethereal, felt but only seen in a glance, a look, a fleeting touch. Part of Love’s beauty is perhaps in the fact that the question never can be adequately answered; its ephemeral, a chimera of the heart and only felt. Our own experiences are unique and personal to ourselves and of little help defining it for another.Love is perhaps best expressed through poetry. As Plato said 2500 years ago “At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet”. Writing a love poem for ones’ partner is seen as the most romantic of gestures. It opens our hearts to another's. Lovers love.Here, in this volume history’s greatest poets convey thoughts, feelings and sentiments of love to you in quick (or bite-size) conversations of verse that can slip into your day and your partner's heart.

The Poetry of Death - Volume 1 Audiobook

The Poetry of Death - Volume 1

Death is a subject that few of us talk about, but many think about and more than a few of us dread. Whether it is the actual end of our life's journey or merely a transit point to Heavenly glory its actual point of impact is, obviously, life changing. But what do poets think of it? How do their minds tangle with the subject and make sense of this? That's what we thought too. Poets as rich and diverse as Longfellow, Hood, Bronte, Burns and Gilbran here share their words, thoughts and visions with us. Death is unavoidable but the journey there should be as informed and enjoyable as possible. On this Volume our readers include Richard Mitchley & Ghizela Rowe.

Robert Burns: A Collection of Poems & Songs Audiobook

Robert Burns: A Collection of Poems & Songs

Author: Robert Burns Narrator: Gordon Kennedy Release Date: May 2017

Many nations have produced outstanding poets who they would gladly have represent their Culture. But can any Nation say they have an equivalent of Robert Burns...The Ploughman Poet, The Bard Of Scotland? This one poet is indelibly linked and intertwined with the culture and people of Scotland. His life, loves, politics, verse, and songs speak as them and for them. Politically, he was an inspiration to both liberalism and socialism as well as a Scottish parliament. His unique ability enabled him to appeal to all and quite rightly to be viewed as the National poet. His fame today is worldwide and celebrated in January each year with the Traditional Burns night. Each New Years Eve friends and families the world over link arms to 'Auld Lang Syne', giving immortality to his words and aims. The former Secretary General of the United Nations, Kofi Annan, has said that Burn's poems dignify and illuminate the struggle faced by the vast majority of the world's population today. Our selection of poems is read to you by Gordon Kennedy. Perhaps most well known as Little John in the ITV series Robin Hood, Gordon is an accomplished actor and a familiar sight on TV.

The Poetry Of Heaven Audiobook

The Poetry Of Heaven

It is often said that two things are unavoidable; Death and Taxes. Certainly the latter is a common thorn in adult life but as to the former it seems that for many people it is merely a hiccup in Life's eternal journey. A journey they wish, if being of good deed and character, to share at the eternity of Heaven's largesse, a reward for Faith and the obligations of Religion. Of course for those not so fortunate an altogether different experience was prepared for them; Hell. For those who take religion as their companion Heaven conjures up all manner of eternal delights. Here we take the thoughts and words of such greats as Gerald Manley Hopkins, WB Yeats, Rupert Brooke, Emily Dickinson and many others to give their views of a time to come. Among our readers are Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe.

The Romantics - Volume 1 Audiobook

The Romantics - Volume 1

Author: John Clare, Robert Burns, William Blake Narrator: Gideon Wagner, Nigel Planer, Richard Mitchley Release Date: May 2017

The Romantics - Volume 1 - An Introduction. Romanticism was a new movement in philosophy and the arts that began in the late 18th century when major political events shook the world such as the French Revolution and American Independence. It marked a distinct contrast to the prevailing Enlightenment ideals and in poetry represented a more personal intuitive, emotional and meditative expression with a back to nature imperative. It subsequently altered the way in which we perceive poetry and beyond as well as defining our own modern sensibilities to the arts. The Romantic poets who were central to this movement are traditionally characterised as the Big Six, namely Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats, Shelley and Byron. However, as these volumes show, there are women poets who are often overlooked and these include Mary Shelley, Anna Laetitia Barbauld, Joanna Baillie and Charlotte Smith. Among our readers are Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe. In this volume we collect together William Blake to John Keats.
