Poetry Advent Calender – window 15

Hello Poetry Lovers

And what a lovely window we have today – Spools of Thread by Angi Holden, published by the now sadly defunct Mother’s Milk Books.

This kind of fell into my lap as much as I had to buy one of their books to enter their competition last year. I didn’t win but I got some fantastic feedback.

This is a neat and intimate collection with warmth, humour and tenderly crafted words. I Measure My Mother’s Love is one of my favourites, plus Christmas Day 1941. Full of unforgettable words on youth, mother’s, and relationships.

I can’t tell you to order it because they’re no longer there, but if it also falls into your lap, then hold onto it.

Thanks for looking in, PL’s. Tune in tomorrow for window 16 – same time, same channel….
