For Days When 'the World is Too Much With Us...'

For Days When 'the World is Too Much With Us...'

By Poetry Pharmacy

These are books chosen for those days when it’s all too much; when work is taking over our lives, for days when it’s hard to get out of bed in the morning and carry on.

They remind us to stop, even if it’s for only a moment and remember to put things into perspective; to remind us of the essential things of life; of love and friends and family and to ‘sit out in the sun and listen’.
