Black Bough Poetry/Barddoniaeth Y Gangen Ddu has produced its second Christmas and Winter-themed anthology and it would be an ideal Christmas gift. Over sixty short poems by poets from around the world are beautifully enhanced by linocuts from Gower-based artist Emma Bissonnet .
Black Bough specialises in imagist micro poems: short, and sharp or sweet, with the emphasis on the visual. These poems take the reader on a tour of the feast and the season. Perfect for dipping into.
Edited by Matthew C. Smith and colleagues, Damien B. Donnelly and M.S.Evans.
I’m delighted to have this poem included.
The smallest words mean the most
May you receive them all
A star of particular promise
A light that has sought and found you
The child of your heart
Waiting beyond the door.
