Light Unlocked : Christmas Card Poems Hardback

Edited by Kevin Crossley-Holland, Lawrence Sail

Illustrated by John Lawrence


A delightful anthology of poems sent by many contemporary writers as Christmas cards.

From Advent to the New Year, these poems encompass the nativity, the natural world, weather and time's passing, religious and secular celebrations at home and abroad.

Wendy Cope welcomes the Christmas life into the house, Seamus Heaney remembers holly-gathering.

Gillian Clarke cradles a newborn lamb, and Edwin Morgan tabulates a computer's Christmas card....

Here are eighty poems with a variety of Christmas messages - hopeful, cautionary, joyous, full of wonder.
