An enchanting and witty compendium of Yuletide poetry includes the lyrics to familiar carols, Moore's "A Visit from St. Nicholas," and other great works by Langston Hughes, Emily Dickinson, Rudyard Kipling, Dorothy Parker, Robert Graves, and Philip

Publishers Description
Christmas is both a holiday and a holy day, and from the start it has been associated with poetry, from the song of the seraphim above the manger to the cherished carols around the punch bowl. This garland of Christmas poems contains not only the ones you would insist on finding here ("A Visit from St. Nicholas," "Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming," and "The Twelve Days of Christmas" among them) but such equally enchanting though lesser-known Yuletide treasures as Emily Dickinson's "The Savior must have been a docile Gentleman," Anthony Hecht's "Christmas Is Coming," Rudyard Kipling's "Christmas in India," Langston Hughes's "Shepherd's Song at Christmas," Robert Graves's "The Christmas Robin," and happy surprises like Phyllis McGinley's "Office Party," Dorothy Parker's "The Maid-Servant at the Inn," and Philip Larkin's "New Year Poem."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent collection of Christmas poems  Feb 19, 2006
This thoughtful selection is deeply satisfying and inspired me to read additional poetry by some of the authors herein. I think any sensible reader will find this collection both reassuring and provocative. There is something here for every Christmas mood; and doesn't Christmas create a lot of moods? I particularly enjoyed the section about the aftermath of Christmas.
Non-sentimental Poems for Both a Holiday and a Holy Day:  Oct 1, 2002
Here is an exquisite anthology, 4 1/2" x 6 1/2", small enough to fit into one's purse or pocket -- to peruse while standing in line at the p.o., at a store counter, etc. Besides Clement Moore's classic "A Visit from St. Nicholas" and familiar carols, here are "Christmas at Sea" by Robert Lewis Stevenson, "The Annunciation" by Elizabeth Jennings, and "Christmas in Biafra" by Chinua Achebe. Also read poems by J.D. McClatchy, Dorothy Parker, Emily Dickinson and other classic or contemporary poets in these 254 pages. Highly recommended.
Delightful  Jan 7, 2000
This is a warm-yet not sentimental-collection of poems which explores many sides of Christmas. It is beautifully typeset and bound and perfect for carrying on one's person for a moment of thoughtful beauty. I wish it included W.H. Auden's entire "For the Time Being" but there were several and wonderful surprising inclusions.
