This collection of poems and short stories, some of which have won prizes and/or been published in various anthologies and periodicals, were written by Anthony Weedon over a period of thirty years. They are mainly inspired by his close association with nature throughout his life. They are composed in a variety of styles and vary from the deeply philosophical to the decidedly humerous and a few were written for children. The short stories are in the form of folk tales inspired by the author's idyllic childhood in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, an experience shared with his late wife Jenny, to whom this work is dedicated. Pigs, horses and wolves, Jenny's and Tony's favourite animals, along with birds, trees and flowers, all feature strongly in many of the poems, four of which are about Jenny, portraying her in various ways.
