Edited by award-winning authors Kevin Crossley-Holland and Lawrence Sail, Light Unlocked: Christmas Card Poems is a collection of eighty Christmas card poems by a wide variety of contemporary authors, many of them well-known. From Advent to Epiphany, these often detailed and nuanced verses reach out to capture the spirit of the Christmas season and deliver a symphony of emotional expression filled with the joy, wonder, hope, and delight of the season. Black-and-white wood engravings by expert John Lawrence beautifully illustrate this sentimental compilation, perfect for reading aloud or sharing with the family while celebrating yuletide. "Christmas": Despite the forecast's promise, / It didn't snow that night; / But in the morning, flakes began / To glade all right. / Not enough to cover roads / Or even hide the grass; / But enough to change the light.
