Description

In this poem Owen Sheers, the popular Welsh poet, novelist and playwright, describes how a cold walk on a winter's afternoon ended with a warm embrace thanks to two tipping swans.

This lesson plan examines Sheers' use of imagery, and ends with students writing their poem based on another species that mates for life.

'Winter Swans' is one of 15 poems in AQA's 'Love and Relationships' cluster in the latest GCSE English literature specification.
