Let The Light Pour In


For the past decade, Lemn Sissay has composed a short poem as dawn breaks each morning. Life-affirming, witty and full of wonder, these poems chronicle his own battle with darkness and are fuelled by resilience and defiant joy. Let the Light Pour In is a collection of the best of these poems, and a book celebrating this morning practice. 'How do you do it?' said night/ 'How do you wake up and shine?'/ 'I keep it simple,' said light/ 'One day at a time.'
