The Holly & The Ivy : XMAS POEMS & STORIES
By hilary west
A Christmas assortment of tales and poems for young and old alike !
The Christmas rose and the snowdrops,
The holly and the ivy,
Garlands of red ribbon,
The fir-cones and the Christmas candle,
The house on the hill
Is in season again !
"And is it true ? And is it true ?
This most tremendous tale of all,
Seen in a stained-glass window's hue,
A Baby in an ox's stall ?
The maker of the stars and sea
Become a Child for me ?"
Christmas, John Betjeman.
