Christmas Poetry. An Introduction. Christmas, they say, comes but once a year. In these days it seems to also last for much of that year but this volume is not just for Christmas! For the religious amongst us this annual celebration of the Birth of Christ must seem bitter sweet; most religions celebrate their founders but Christianity seems somehow to have lost possession of one of its key rituals in an ever more secular West. In this collection we rely on the words and wisdom of such fine poets as John Milton, Emily Dickinson, Sir Walter Scott, Daniel Sheehan, Wordsworth, Longfellow and a whole host of others. Many of these poems are also available on our audiobook version at iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores.
