London is the greenest of cities and Hampstead Heath and Regent’s Park are two of its most glorious – very different – open spaces, whose beauty changes through the seasons. For each month of the year this book offers at least one poem set on the Heath and one set in the Park. Londoners in all their variety, with their 300 languages, enjoy their pleasure grounds and belong in them as the speaking animals.

Dinah Livingstone is a Londoner who has lived in the same house in Camden Town since 1966. She loves both Hampstead Heath and Regent’s Park and often walks and writes in them.

Dinah Livingstone's beautiful new collection Poems of Hampstead Heath and Regent's Park is a hymn to London's green public spaces ... a calendar cycle, following the seasons in two of London's most famous parks.' -- Morning Star

'The music of the flawlessly plain language and the luminosity of the vision are unmissable (in both senses)... These thirty-four linked poems come together purposefully, but also, you feel, ingenuously, such is the writer's gift for direct, persuasive language and delightful "showing" '. -- Artemis
