Light piece of verse that facilitates communication (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

landline

Here is my best explanation:

'that facilitates communication' is the definition.

'light piece of verse' is the subsidiary indication.

'light' becomes 'land'.

'piece of verse' becomes 'line'.

'land'+'line'='landline'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for landline that I've seen before include "Means of comms" and "means".)
