Trees for All Seasons: A Book of Poetry
Anne M. Nichandros, author
Trees for All Seasons is a book of poems about trees. The author uses various poetic styles, as well as colorful images, personification, and flights of fantasy to write about trees and their transformations throughout the seasons. In this book, you will read about tree swings and sweet figs, spring blossoms switching on like light bulbs and autumn leaves shaped like lemon drops and paper lanterns. You’ll read of blood-thirsty dinosaur trees hovering over a quiet street and yogi trees saluting the morning sun, standing dead trees in Yellowstone Park and jet black, gothic forests on an alien world. The author is a former scientist and a homeschool parent who lives in Northern California with her husband and son. For her poetry, she takes inspiration from nature in her backyard, her neighborhood and the many nearby regional parks.
