    Happy St Stephen's Day everyone!

    St Stephen had an Angel's face


    Saint Stephen had an angel’s face,
    All full of virtue, full of grace,
    By the false Jews was stoned to death
    For Jesus Christ and for his faith;
    But for these stones in heaven he found
    Of precious pearls a glorious crown.

    The Jews do falsely him accuse,
    And in their council him abuse,
    Their furious rage without delay
    Make stones their arms him to destroy;
    But of those stones in heaven he found
    Of precious pearls a glorious crown.

    The most sweet saint with his last breath
    Doth pray for those who seek his death,
    And leaves not off while life doth last,
    As thick as hail their stones they cast;
    And for those stones in heaven he found
    Of precious pearls a glorious crown.

    Oh woe is me
    I'm broken hearted
    I paid a penny
    and only farted.

    Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet,
    Her knockers all tattered and torn.
    It wasn't the spidet that sat down beside her
    But Little Boy Blue and his horn.

    I say! What an anti-Semitic poem!

    What's a spidet?

    Only teasing you because I know you have a good sense of humour!

    JANUARY By Edith Nesbit

    WHILE yet the air is keen, and no bird sings,
    Nor any vaguest thrills of heart declare
    The presence of the springtime in the air,
    Through the raw dawn the shepherd homeward brings
    The wee white lambs--the little helpless things--
    For shelter, warmth, and comfortable care.
    Without his help how hardly lambs would fare--
    How hardly live through winter's hours to spring's!


    So let me tend and minister apart
    To my new hope, which some day you shall know:
    It could not live in January wind
    Of your disdain; but when within your heart
    The bud and bloom of tenderness shall grow,
    Amid the flowers my hope may welcome find.
    January

    Ae Fond Kiss

    By Robert Burns


    Ae fond kiss, and then we sever;
    Ae fareweel, and then forever!
    Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
    Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee.
    Who shall say that Fortune grieves him,
    While the star of hope she leaves him?
    Me, nae cheerfu' twinkle lights me;
    Dark despair around benights me.

    I'll ne'er blame my partial fancy,
    Naething could resist my Nancy;
    But to see her was to love her;
    Love but her, and love forever.
    Had we never lov'd sae kindly,
    Had we never lov'd sae blindly,
    Never met—or never parted—
    We had ne'er been broken-hearted.

    Fare thee weel, thou first and fairest!
    Fare thee weel, thou best and dearest!
    Thine be ilka joy and treasure,
    Peace. enjoyment, love, and pleasure!
    Ae fond kiss, and then we sever;
    Ae fareweel, alas, forever!
    Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
    Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee!

    Excerpt from May-Day by Ralph Waldo Emerson(1867)

    Wreaths for the May! for happy Spring
    Today shall all her dowry bring
    The love of kind, the joy, the grace,
    Hymen of element and race,
    Knowing well to celebrate
    With song and hue and star and state,
    With tender light and youthful cheer,
    The spousals of the new-born year.
    Lo love’s inundation poured
    Over space and race abroad
