Christmas Lights: Ten Poems for Dark Winter Nights

by Various authors
£4.95   paperback  Candlestick Press (2018)

Christmas Lights: Ten Poems for Dark Winter Nights by Various authors The switching on of festive lights in towns and villages across the land announces the fact that Christmas is fast approaching. It also marks the start of real winter.
 
This delightful selection contains ten brand new poems by leading contemporary poets and comes with a limited edition poem postcard. We find light in all its many shapes and forms – from the ‘glittering heart’ of Paris in December to the glint of a skater’s boot on a frozen lake or the sugary shine of a child’s candy cane. And worlds away from the hubbub and dazzle, there’s the silent watcher at the window who:
 
“... sits on the low sill, half-
dreaming, watching the lights churn
over the hills, whisky gold in her glass.”

 
~ from ‘Northern Lights’ by Nancy Campbell
 
The special postcard features the poem ‘This little town’ by Rob Miles, winner of Candlestick Press' postcard poem competition.
 
Poems by Nancy Campbell, Niall Campbell, John Clegg, Tony Curtis, Katherine Gallagher, Stephen Keeler, Zaffar Kunial, Hannah Lowe, Kim Moore and Amali Rodrigo.
