It nourished disquieted, as well as romantic, spirits. It materialized ideals of beauty and perfect scenarios for the thoughts of those that designed this heritage jewel, which is no longer only ours, to fly.

A Christmas Poem

From Paulo Lowndes Marques little Christmas books, a poem:

 

And is it true? And is it true

This most tremendous tale of all,

Seen in a stained glass window's hue

A baby in a ox's stall?

The maker of the stars and sea

Became a child on earth for me?

 

John Betjeman (1906-1984)
