Poems for Happiness

An uplifting collection of poetry about happiness with an introduction by The Reverend Richard Coles

Poetry is the perfect medium to capture the elusive nature of happiness, and this beautiful anthology explores happiness in all its forms—whether it be a fleeting moment, the promise of freedom and adventure, surviving adversity or the comfort of nature.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library, a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket-sized classics with gold-foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. Poems for Happiness features an introduction by writer, broadcaster and parish priest, the Reverend Richard Coles.

This inspiring and life-affirming collection features writing by some of our greatest poets whose work is still widely read today. It includes famous poems such as ‘How Do I Love Thee?’ by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, ‘If’ by Rudyard Kipling, ‘My Heart Leaps Up’ by William Wordsworth and ‘Invictus’ by W. E. Henley. In addition to these well-known verses, this beautiful volume includes lesser-known poems to discover and enjoy.
