Website of poet Elizabeth Rimmer

Happy Christmas Everyone

The alchemy of myth-
the stars and angels, the earth’s
return to light, green ivy,
the quickening sap in the tree’s
deep heart, the cattle
kneeling in frosty fields,
the robin’s song at midnight –
all refined to the bare particular
fact of a birth –
that night, that inn, that boy.

Peace and happiness to everyone who is celebrating the winter feasts.
