Ten Poems about Bicycles

Ten Poems about Bicycles

This second edition of our much-loved mini-anthology of bicycle poems is a real treat. Invigorated by some delightful new poems, the selection takes us along the highways and byways of cycling lore, from a freewheeling nun relishing the exhilaration of being on a bike on a hot summer’s day to the young man cycling in his brand new soldier’s uniform at the start of World War One. In a captivating poem about young love, a girl is waiting to meet a boy whose bicycle seems to encapsulate his glamour: “He rides A bicycle that glitters like The wind.” from ‘Girl, Boy, Flower, Bicycle’ by MK Joseph. Poignant, humorous and unexpected by turn, these poems will delight anyone who loves cycling – as well as those who just like to remember those carefree days when falling off didn’t seem to matter. Poems by Connie Bensley, James Roderick Burns, Jonathan Davidson, Michael Donaghy, Jonathan Edwards, Jacqueline Gabbitas, MK Joseph, Derek Mahon, Paul McLoughlin, Helena Nelson.
