"Letters from Yorkshire" is a poem by the British poet Maura Dooley. In the poem, the speaker juxtaposes their modern lifestyle with the agrarian world of an acquaintance, with whom they exchange letters. These letters describe farming life and the natural world, which the speaker believes is "more real" than the speaker's own life of working indoors at a computer. Even as the poem highlights both the wonders and the harsh realities of working outdoors, it underlines the extent to which nature is missing from modern life, and how that void could create a feeling of unfulfillment.
