    Love Set You Going: Poems of the Heart

    `Love set you going'. The opening words of Sylvia Plath's poem for her newborn daughter are true of each one of us. Love is fundamental to our being, our growth, our development and our happiness. Love enables us to make meaning of our lives in the world, and it gives us hope for what lies beyond. It is completely humdrum and ordinary - yet mysterious beyond words. Beginning in the body, it points us to eternity. Life offers, and asks of us, many different kinds of love, and poets have reflected on this truth with insight and acute observation. As Janet Morley explores love `up and down the generations', `grown up love' and love between `God and the human heart', she reveals what our hearts eventually discern - love has its seasons and ambiguities, its certainties and passions. Love is never simple at all.

    Haphazard by Starlight: A poem a day from Advent to Epiphany

    ,
    Advent is celebrated when the year is becoming darker and colder, moving into the death and dormancy of winter. Before we can greet the coming of the light, we need to engage with some themes that are challenging and occasionally fearful. Like the Magi who travelled a long distance to search out and adore the infant Jesus, and who took some wrong turns on the way, we too have a journey to undertake before we find that we have 'Walked haphazard by starlight straight into the kingdom of heaven.' (U.A. Fanthorpe, BC:AD) Haphazard by Starlight is a companion volume to Janet Morley's bestselling Lent book, The Heart's Time. Here the reader is given the opportunity to engage in a pilgrimage of the heart, through Advent and Christmas to the feast of Epiphany. Each day, from 1 December to 6 January, offers a poem (sometimes explicitly Christian, sometimes not) and an accessible commentary that is both critically informed and devotional in intent.

    The Heart’s Time: A Poem a Day for Lent and Easter

    Packed with riches yet highly accessible, The Heart's Time is at its core a series of short, resonant poems for each weekday of Lent and Easter. It will appeal to existing poetry lovers as well as those who want to start exploring how poems can be a resource for our spiritual lives, whether or not they are written with a consciously Christian intent. Poets often address subjects our culture seeks to avoid, and poetry demands that we 'slow down to the heart's time' in order to discover deeper levels of meaning than at first appear. Janet Morley offers her own skilful and reflective commentaries on a fascinating themed sequence of both familiar and unexpected poems including works by Margaret Atwood, St Augustine, Charles Causley, E.E. Cummings, Emily Dickinson, Carol Ann Duffy, Ruth Fanlight, U.A.Fanthorpe, Robert Frost, Seamus Heaney, George Herbert, Elizabeth Jennings, Denise Levertov, Roger McGough, Adrienne Rich, Christina Rossetti, R.S.Thomas and Rowan WIlliams.
