Szymborska’s poems are mostly short, and her output was not voluminous—only around 400 published poems. And yet, she is one of the few contemporary poets you can call beloved and not have it be a condescension or an insult
"Grongar Hill" by John Piper, 1982. In 1982 Piper illustrated a limited edition of Grongar Hill by Stourton Press. Grongar Hill, a poem by John Dyer first published in 1726, struck Piper 'as one of the best purely topographical poems in existence, because it is so visual. ... I have loved the poem ever since I first read it, and I return to it whenever I feel depressed about the countryside getting spoilt.'
