50 Shades of Mothers Audiobook

50 Shades of Mothers

There is one universal word which all babies instinctively sound in every language and that is 'mama'. It produces a bond the like of which there is no other.Women are hard-wired by Nature to nurture and raise. Along the human chain of generations we would wish that every infant has depended on this woman, found shelter within her arms, food within her breast and the confidence to experience life and all its wonders from her love.Whether we understand it or recognise it, it is women who have shaped the course and journey of humanity.It is true, that mothering, the maternal instinct, comes in all shapes and shades and sizes. Some women find it difficult and others easy. Society with its norms and ever-readiness to make all conform, places pressures and difficulties in the paths of many. Families may not all be harbours of milk and honey but in this volume we take a different view. Here we journey with our classic poets from Christina Georgina Rossetti and Thomas Hardy to Frances W Harper and Kipling, not only the ways, the wonders and the women who take on the responsibility to raise children no matter the problems or dangers to themselves, but also the difficulties and sometimes desperate tragedies that motherhood can involve. We hope these poems inspire every generation to reach out and better themselves and those around. This is our tribute to mothers everywhere.

Christmas Poetry Audiobook

Christmas Poetry

Christmas, they say, comes but once a year. In these days it seems to also last for much of that year.For the religious amongst us this annual celebration of the Birth of Christ must seem bitter sweet; it's acknowledgment by billions of people countered by the pervasive spread of material possessions translating the event to little more than a sales pitch for their own wares. Most religions celebrate their founders but Christianity seems somehow to have lost possession of one of its key rituals in an ever more secular West. The spread of globalisation seems to have hindered rather than helped the true meaning of the festival. Children today are much more interested in what presents they might receive than any spiritual message. As parents too, most of us buy into this and we seem to indulge our offspring rather than the themes and aims of the festival's meaning common to us all. In this collection we rely on the words and wisdom of such fine poets as John Milton, Emily Dickinson, Sir Walter Scott, Daniel Sheehan, Wordsworth, Longfellow and a whole host of others to absorb us in a Christmas time of hope and togetherness set amongst a landscape of winter wonderment and Nature's palest palette. The experiences and memories they share with us speak of a time, of a world that did have a common purpose and an ambition to share good fortune with everyone.

The Cavalier Poets Audiobook

The Cavalier Poets

Author: Ben Jonson, Edmund Waller, Richard Lovelace Narrator: Ghizela Rowe, Richard Mitchley, Tim Graham Release Date: August 2018

Whilst this given name and the poets included can seem at first glance broad and unmanageable the name both historically and artistically is a near perfect fit. Those poets that pledged support to Charles I, a connoisseur and patron of fine arts, were in the main courtiers or closely aligned. Among their number were Robert Herrick, Richard Lovelace, Thomas Carew and Sir John Suckling.These poets shied away from verse on religion or philosophy but mused instead on love, joy and simpler things very much living for the 'now'. And their verse achieves this with a beauty and potency that, despite their powerful and privileged position, speaks for us all. This volume comes to you from Portable Poetry, a specialized imprint from Deadtree Publishing. Our range is large and growing and covers single poets, themes, and many compilations.

Mother's Day Poetry  - Volume 1 Audiobook

Mother's Day Poetry - Volume 1

Author: Thomas Hardy, Walt Whitman, William Wordsworth Narrator: Ghizela Rowe, Tim Graham Release Date: May 2017

This volume of poetry brings together poems throughout history with very special women. The relationship with our Mother is one of the most powerful many of us will ever feel. It rivals those with our children and partners in a way that both permeates and challenges how and on what terms we live our lives. A woman giving birth is not only bringing life into the World, she is doing so, usually, at great pain to herself. The fact that this is transformed within minutes of birth to a deep, unconditional love is truly beautiful. Whatever the future brings for Mother or child that bond will hold. The first attempts at language by babies is usually 'muh' or 'ma' - a universal sound for Mother. In every race, culture and domain Mothers are seen as both a symbol and living emblem of love and nurture, of comfort and safety. As we grow older that relationship changes but on a fundamental level remains giving, unconditional and unequivocal. As we become parents ourselves that circle of experience completes a full turn. For poets through time this unique and fulfilling relationship has enabled some of the greatest verse to be written by some of our most famed poets from Wordsworth to Whitman to Tennyson and many, many others. We hope this experience of listening to these carefully chosen words will help you reflect and further enjoy the experience that a Mother's love has brought to your life. Their devotion to ours ensures ours to theirs. Whilst we celebrate Mother's Day once a year, every day is their day.

Father's Day Poetry Audiobook

Father's Day Poetry

Author: Emily Bronte, Rudyard Kipling, Walt Whitman Narrator: Ghizela Rowe, Tim Graham Release Date: May 2017

The role of Fathers has changed much over the course of centuries. Men are now better suited to a role of co-parent in this modern age rather than the stilted, slightly aloof figure of times past. Being a Father is, of course, both a blessing and a burden. This modern day parenting in a frenetic fast changing world has to be both learnt and adapted from some inner well of memory from generations past as well as on the job experience. How to combine both the tenderness of love and support of modern views with the age old virtues of strength and leadership brings many difficulties to most men. Surprisingly then that poets have given Fathers both a courageous view of life as well as a dependability to be there for their children. In success or failure we can identify with their hopes and dreams. In this collection many of our greatest poets express their worded opinions of that unique role of Fatherhood - whether as one themselves or as a child reaching for that same mantle. It's a difficult role for most men to assume and to keep perspective with but do you know any Father who is not ready to accept the challenge? Or any son and daughter not willing to acknowledge that unique and binding bond? This collection of Father's Day poetry is read for you by Ghizela Rowe and Tim Graham.

The Story Of Shakespeare's Pericles Audiobook

The Story Of Shakespeare's Pericles

Author: William Shakespeare Narrator: Tim Graham Release Date: May 2017

Pericles is the Prince of Tyre but is forced to leave the city due to the atrocities that the wicked Emperor of Greece threatens to bestow should he stay. His courage, wisdom and goodness are recognized wherever he goes so much so that he marries the Queen of Pentapolis who bears him a child at sea, for he is forced to return to Tyre to pacify its citizens who are clamouring for his return as their ruler following the death of the wicked Emperor of Greece. He believes his Queen to have died in childbirth and has to trust the upbringing of this newly born daughter, Marina, with the good rulers of Tarsus, as on board ship is no place for an infant. Pericles was grief stricken at the loss of his wife and child and could hardly eat or speak but the twists of fate had a better outcome for him. Although not one of the best known of Shakespeare's histories it has all his trademarks and with a strong reading by the warm rousing voice of Tim Graham, means this audio shouldn't be ignored.

Rudyard Kipling: A Poetry Selection

Author: Rudyard Kipling Narrator: Ghizela Rowe, Richard Mitchley, Tim Graham Release Date: May 2017

Rudyard Kipling.
