The Long Road Home, Volume One: Spring & Summer is the first half of a two-part poetry collection themed around the seasons of the year, by Aeronwy Dafies. It is an A5 booklet in format.

Available to order.

The first edition was released in 2003 with cover art by Richard Burman, and was mirrored by a companion piece, Volume Two: Autumn & Winter.

Greatly expanded second editions of both volumes were released in 2012, with Volume One now featuring a partially reordered contents sequence – which includes a substantial number of additional poems – and cover art (Kingfisher) by Aeronwy Dafies.
