Not So Bleak Midwinter



eloracElorac on 12/09/2008

trivia quiz One of my favorite poems is "In The Bleak Midwinter" by Christina G. Rossetti in 1872. I think it really emotes the feelings of Advent's longing, the wonderment for the nativity, and the challenge of commitment. This poem's original title was "A Christmas Carol" and wasn't published until 1875. It first appeared as the Advent Hymn, "In The Bleak Midwinter", in "The English Hymnal", with Gustav Holst's tune Cranham in 1906. Usually only 4 verses are shown with the hymn, but there are 5 stanzas to the poem. As you solve this easy Kerblunk, read over the words and listen to the deep longing and inner joy. And may the Christ Child be born again within your heart this season.
