Silent Nights is a collection of poetry written every year during the Christmas time. For over four decades, Bruce Clark has written an annual Christmas poem by way of a gift for family, friends, and associates. The poems were of varying styles and tones, depending on the history of any particular year. Now, Clark has compiled an anthology of twenty of these poems. Silent Nights collects those written for the first twenty Christmases of the current millennium. As well as celebrating the values of every Christmas, these poems in their variety also represent a history of two massive decades. Enjoy this unique gift of Christmas.
