These ten specially commissioned poems celebrate the joy of Christmas in all its variety. Some evoke the bustle of untangling fairy lights, of shopping and cooking and opening presents, while others celebrate our more ancient seasonal traditions, such as collecting holly and ivy to bring into the house.
Candlestick Press ‘Instead of a Card’ poetry pamphlets make perfect presents – unusual, beautiful, worthwhile and definitely not for throwing away. They come with an envelope and bookmark left blank for your message. Interesting and enjoyable to read, they make an excellent introduction to the work of contemporary and historical poets.
