Spring begins the renewal both of humanity and of nature. The very sound of the word suggests impetus and movement, and people do seem taken with the notion that the year’s journey is about to begin. The days become longer and warmer, the fresh green of new growth begins to show itself, and all manner of life starts to busy itself with activities and plans. In this collection of poetry, Emily Dickinson, William Blake, Thomas Hardy, Rudyard Kipling, and others bring their words of insight, charm, and emotion to listeners.

About the Author
Author Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson (1830–1886) was born in Amherst, Massachusetts. Throughout her life, she seldom left her house, and visitors were scarce. The people with whom she did come in contact, however, had an enormous impact on her thoughts and poetry. By the 1860s, she lived in almost total physical isolation from the outside world but actively maintained many correspondences and read widely. Her poetry reflects her loneliness, and the speakers of her poems generally live in a state of want, but her poems are also marked by the intimate recollection of inspirational moments which are decidedly life-giving and suggest the possibility of happiness. The first volume of her work was published posthumously in 1890 and the last in 1955.
