Happy December!

It is slightly freaky how the year has gone so quickly and that it is December 1st already! Time to light the Advent candle at the dinner table tonight.

When I think of December, for some reason the lines from Emily Brontë’s poem, Remembrance, come to mind. I love these two lines in particular:

“Cold in the earth–and fifteen wild Decembers

From those brown hills, have melted into spring”

There is such a raw beauty about Emily Brontë”s poems and I sometimes think that her poetry is overlooked as when her name is mentioned, most people instantly think of her most famous work, Wuthering Heights.

Happy December!
