The Traherne Association welcomes you to this site which celebrates and promotes the life and work of the poet and spiritual writer Thomas Traherne (c1637 - 1674).

We see that the Soul, like a Bee flying in a Garden, from flower to flower; can rove over all Eternitie, from Creature to Creature from Region to Region, and see the Limits of Existence and Possibilitie. (Commentaries of Heaven, from ‘Observations’ in ‘Accident’)
