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).

When I came into the Country, and being seated among silent Trees, had all my Time in mine own Hands, I resolved to spend it all, whatever it cost me, in search of Happiness, and to satiate that burning Thirst which Nature had rekindled in me from my Youth. (Centuries of Meditations, III, 46)
