An Oxford Christmas Gathering


Pleasant and unexpected leisure

spent in the company of

entertaining poets

and professors

telling anecdotes of past advents

dipping from a strange well

of meanings and metaphors

amusing the good senses of the season

with murmurs of delight

connecting primitive ancient stories

of illusions


and treasure

performed by mummers

and saintly heroes in holly berries

run on through this night

connecting us back

to the gentle themes of Victorian revelries

and the glories of Christmas past
