The mid-winter holiday provides the perfect space to indulge the pleasure of poetry and in this pamphlet you’ll find a poen for each of the twelve days of that holiday season.

All these Christmas poems circle around the story we’ve been telling for 2000 years about what happened in Bethlehem on a certain 25th December – and the deep questions that underwrite it.

Poets included are: WH Auden, John Betjeman, TS Eliot, Thomas Hardy, Dan Holloway, Patrick Kavanagh, Mary Oliver, Anne Porter, Adrienne Rich, Anne Sexton, Christopher Smart, WB Yeats – and there’s a “bonus” poem from Orna Ross, a reworked Irish blessing.

The perfect stocking filler – or gift to self.
