Earth Song Ecopoetry Anthology is Here!
We’re filled with gratitude that the Earth Song ecopoetry anthology is finally here.
It took two years to secure all the poem permissions, but the poems were worth the wait!
From established poets like Pablo Neruda, W.S. Merwin, and Jane Hirshfield to emerging poets like Michelle Ortega and Rick Maxson, the pages are filled with beautiful ecopoetry. The collection also includes diverse voices, many in translation from across the globe.
