Mark Rylance - 'The Swan'
How often have you been awed by the beauty of wetlands? There's a reason why nature and art often go hand in hand. This National Poetry Day, watch actor Mark Rylance recite 'The Swan' by Rainer Maria Rilke, surrounded by the creatures that inspired this poem. There's something special about water. Wetlands can be sources of incredible peace, and spending time in them has been proven to benefit our wellbeing.
