A poem for Billie Holiday

Playing tracks by

Billie Holiday and Salena Godden.

Lauren Laverne and Sam Baker asked me to write a poem for The Pool about Billie Holiday for her centenary. Billie was born 100 years ago today. Whatever you do today please take some time out to listen to her music, take a moment to thank the great Billie Holiday.

“It’s not about her dark
It is always about her light”

I love this poem and of course I love Billie Holliday. This is a great tribute to her legacy.
