Atypical of his works, this is a brief, cheerful poem submitted by Alice Bampton, Communications and Marketing Dept.

 

“Christmastide” by H. P. Lovecraft

The cottage hearth beams warm and bright,

The candles gaily glow;

The stars emit a kinder light

Above the drifted snow.

 

Down from the sky a magic steals

To glad the passing year,

And belfries sing with joyous peals,

For Christmastide is here!
