Season’s Greetings

The darkness breaks
And Dawn awakes,
Her cheeks suffused with youthful blushes.
The rocks and stones
In holy tones
Are singing sweeter than the thrushes.

Paul Laurence Dunbar (Christmas Carol)

Merry Christmas Everyone

Open Box – Christmas Quotation of the Day by Marjorie Holmes

Season’s Greetings

Ghost-grey the fall of night,
Ice-bound the lane,
Lone in the dying light
Flits he again;
Lurking where shadows steal,
Perched in his coat of blood,
Man’s homestead at his heel,
Death-still the wood.

Walter de la Mare (A Robin)

Season’s Greetings

Now winter nights enlarge
The number of their hours;
And clouds their storms discharge
Upon the airy towers.
Let now the chimneys blaze
And cups o’erflow with wine,
Let well-turned words amaze
With harmony divine.

Thomas Campion (Now Winter Nights Enlarge)

IMAGE POETRY CHRISTMAS CAROL POEM TITLE THE HOLLY AND THE IVY POET TRADITIONAL

Season’s Greetings Everyone

The holly and the ivy,
When they are both full grown,
Of all the trees that are in the wood,
The holly bears the crown.
The rising of the sun
And the running of the deer,
The playing of the merry organ,
Sweet singing in the choir.

The Holly and the Ivy – Traditional

Seasons Greetings 2022

The Frost performs its secret ministry,
Unhelped by any wind. The owlet’s cry
Came loud—and hark, again! loud as before.
The inmates of my cottage, all at rest,
Have left me to that solitude, which suits
Abstruser musings: save that at my side
My cradled infant slumbers peacefully.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge (Frost at Midnight)

I also extend a very warm welcome and Season’s Greetings to all new visitors, readers and followers.

Season’s Greetings

Bring in a tree, a young Norwegian spruce,
Bring hyacinths that rooted in the cold,
Bring winter jasmine as its buds unfold:
Bring the Christmas life into this house.

Open Box – Christmas Quotation of the Day by Nick Hornby

Season’s Greetings

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

Christina Rossetti (A Christmas Carol)
