Synopsis

Where do we find the words to greet a new arrival? In this celebratory book, poet Kate Clanchy has made an inspired choice of poems that speak powerfully of the wonder, joy, bewilderment and mystery that new life brings, from conception through to the first years of parenthood. The Picador Book of Birth Poems is an essential source of inspiration for anyone looking to welcome the new child to the world, and the perfect gift for every new parent -- as well as a wonderfully moving literary journey in its own right.
