‘Starfall: Winter Poems’ is a collection of sixteen new poems based on the theme of winter, many of which take their inspiration from the bleak North Yorkshire moors; a frosty setting fully evoked in the outstanding illustrations by Penny Berry.

Wes Magee's ‘Blackstaff Press Collection’ was a Poetry Society Recommendation and he is also well known as a writer for children.

The Christmas Travellers

‘ The frost was hard,
    the snowdrifts deep
when shepherds left their flock of sheep
    and glimpsed the child asleep, asleep.

A new star shone on three Wise Men.
    Each wore a cloak
and diadem.
    From far they came
to Bethlehem’
