Inspiration

The image on the card was inspired by a poem by Ted Hughes (1930 to 1998). In his poem ’Work and Play’ he evokes and compares the beauty and balanced lives of the summer swallow to the unnatural and polluting behaviours of humans. He describes swallows as 'the fish of the air' and 'whiplash swimmers'.

25p of the cost of this card is being donated to Libraries Unlimited to purchase children's poetry books. Libraries Unlimited is an independent charity, established in April 2016, which runs libraries across Devon and Torbay. They believe in the unlimited potential of library services to make a positive difference to people’s lives and communities through a shared love of reading and access to high quality information and facilities.
