You may know Ursula Fanthorpe (known as UA Fanthorpe), but I discovered some of her work just a few years ago, and enjoy her new-to-me look at some treasures of life. This piece in The Telegraph shares three of her poems, and that she began writing Christmas poems for friends in 1974, and sent them in her yearly Christmas cards. You can find a collection of these poems in Christmas Poems: BC:AD here.
Here's a favorite poem by UA Fanthorpe for Christmas:
This was the moment when Before
Turned into After, and the future's
This was the moment when nothing
Happened. Only dull peace
Sprawled boringly over the earth.the rest is here, along with two others, also intriguing ideas about the history told.
You can view it with music, too:
Happy Holidays to you, wherever you are, whatever you celebrate. May you find joy, rest, and laughter at this special time of year.
