Poets from America, Canada, England, Holland, India, Malta, Nepal, Norway, Pakistan, the Philippines, Poland, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and Venezuela have all offered their admiration, displaying a wide range of interpretation in their love, affection, and relationships with the world of flora. Flowers are well known to have many different symbolisms, the red rose is often connoted with stories of love, whilst the red of the poppy offers hope and prosperity in light of death. In many cultures, flowers such as the lily are used to symbolise life and resurrection, associating with the sun; in fact, most, if not all flowers will have meaning to someone, somewhere - be it a cultural association, or a personal story. This anthology is a beautiful, sensitive celebration of our relationship with flowers. The following poets are featured in The Poetry of Flowers Sheikha A.

D. H. Lawrence (1885-1930) made a contribution to poetry that, in the words of Louise Bogan, "can now be recognized as one of the most important, in any language, of our time." Birds, Beasts and Flowers, his first great experiment in free verse, was published when he was thirty-eight. This Black Sparrow edition reprints the first edition (New York: Thomas Seltzer, 1923) with a few corrections of typographical errors and the restoration of a number of lines considered indecent in 1923. The cover reproduces D. H. Lawrence's design for the dust jacket of the first edition. Many of these individual poems are popular in anthologies. However, they are best read in the context and continuum of the whole book. In preparing the original collection for publication, Lawrence grouped the poems in a purposeful sequence. For a later printing he prefaced many of the sub-sections with brief quotations from the third edition of John Burnet's Early Greek Philosophy.

It is that elusive, concentrated presence, the sudden coming and going of life forms mostly hidden, the awareness of mysteries that can only be given, not forced into being, that both the mushrooms and the poems in this volume point toward. Gathered from the root-zones of many different trees, knife-scraped from rock-face, lifted from dung, spore-flung into air, these gathered mushroom poems offer undomestic, distinctive discoveries to all who choose to join the effort to find them.
