Ten Poems of Kindness by Jackie Kay

Regular price $11.50 Sale

A simple and almost old-fashioned word, kindness is an underestimated virtue in our increasingly hectic and impersonal world. These generous poems remind us that kindness can take many forms and doesn't have to be time-consuming or complicated. On the contrary: 'Sometimes a sober voice is enough to calm the waters & drive away the false witnesses,' from 'Kindness' by Yusef Komunyakaa Edited by Jackie Kay who has written two new poems specially for the anthology, this moving selection is allied to a compelling cause. `Felix's Campaign of Kindness' was instigated by the mother of Felix Alexander, a 17-year-old boy who took his own life after years of online bullying. The pamphlet is dedicated to his memory and contains the inspirational open letter written by his mother after his death. Jackie Kay is one of the foremost poets writing in Britain today. She has published numerous poetry collections and a memoir, Red Dust Road. She is the third modern Makar, the Scottish Poet Laureate.
