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.
