    • Ah, poetry Whether short or endless, poignant or round-about, obvious or puzzling, it is certainly a joy to read. I have recently fallen in love with poetry again, and this is a good collection. Sorted by topics, these poems address topics like grief, hope and courage and mean to help with these different emotions. The poems Deborah Alma collected show a wide variety across centuries and continents, and there ought to be one poem per category (at least!) that makes you go "Wow". Of course, colle [...]


    • Ļoti skaista dzejas izlase, ko uzdāvināja māsa Īrijas ceļojuma laikā. Laiku pa laikam to pārlasu, arvien atrodot kaut ko jaunu, ko iepriekš nebiju pamanījusi. Viens no vismīļākajiem šīs antoloģijas dzejoļiem ir Inessential things, kas ir par to, ko kaķi atceras par piedzīvotajām dienām.


    • I am generally not a big fan of poetry anthologies, having often bought them in the past and found them lacking. I picked this one up in my local Waterstones - partly because I liked the cover, and partly because I had visited The Emergency Poet at a poetry festival and she had prescribed me two excellent poems. I was not intending to buy it at all, just to have a look, I then decided to buy it intending to give it as a present as it is a beautiful thing - but when it came to it I found that I c [...]


    • This is a gorgeous selection of poetry and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Some poems were old friends and it was a pleasure to reacquaint myself with them; other poems were totally new and I am adding these poets to my reading list. I love the way the poems are gathered into key themes as this is very helpful if you want something for a particular crisis occasion. I thoroughly recommend this book.


    • These poems really helped me get through my exam period. They are uplifting, interesting and make you stop and think. One of my favourite poems was Postscript by Seamus Heaney


    • While I must confess I much rather preferred the list of further suggestions at the end of the book ("Wild Geese" by Mary Oliver being one of my favorites), I still believe that "The Emergency Poet" is quite an extraordinary idea.Each section focusing on a particular malady, the remedies come in many different flavors and forms. I would say that there is at least one poem in this anthology for every soul, one poem that will change the course of someone's day, someone's life.Don't expect to fall [...]



    • Alma is the world's first 'emergency poet'. She gives consultations in a vintage ambulance and dispenses poetry prescriptions. This is a collection of her favourite 'pick-me-up' poems.


    • I'm not sure I would recommend this as mental health support but I would recommend it as a beautiful and contemplative collection. Worth reading


    • Something to pick up and put down. The power of words and the poetry of masters to soothe or at least explain how you are feeling. I will be purchasing this book. Enough said.


    • This is a really lovely anthology of poetry that will brighten up your days. The collection is divided into category sections addressing such issues as :For Days When the World Is Too Much With UsTalking to GriefGetting OlderCourage and InspirationI'd defy you not to find several poems in each category which have the capacity to either lift you up, move you into a new place or provide empathic support as you deal with many of every day life's challenges. I have read many of the poems over and ov [...]


    • A good mix of poems, some old favourites, a couple authors I hadn't heard of and a few that did nothing for me. Well printed on quality paper, nice to hold on the hand as well as read.



    • Read this book on the plane and totally fell in love with it. I like the purpose of the book and its ability to make you smile or to identify with certain ideas or moods. My friends liked to borrow it so they could spend some minutes reading. Recommended to everyone and especially to those who have not that much time for reading!
