Virginia's Holiday Card 2012



Here's a verse for the season:

"A Brumalian Wish"
by "Edward John Ambrose Bierce Theobald," a.k.a. H.P. Lovecraft

From the damnable shadows of madness,
From the corpse-ridden hollow of Weir,
Comes a horrible message of gladness,
And a ghost-guided poem of cheer -
And a gloom-spouting pupil of Poe sends the pleasantest wish of the year!

May the ghouls of the neighboring regions,
And the curséd necrophagous things,
Lay aside their dark habits in legions,
For the bliss that Brumalia brings -
And may Druids innum’rable bless thee, as they dance on the moor’s fairy-rings!

So, Galba, may pleasures attend thee
Thro’ all thy bright glorious days;
May the world and the mighty commend thee,
And the cosmos resound with thy praise -
And may all future ages be brilliant with the light of thine intellect’s rays!


PS. To all of you who have sent such lovely holiday wishes and goodies by mail and email, as well as everyone who has posted holiday greetings, thank you for your thoughtfulness!

She is so patient with her silly humans. (Part of this may be that she's also well compensated for her time with treats. *g*) And thanks so much for the kind words. She's are darling girl, that's for sure.

Merry Christmas to you, too!

What a splendid poem for the occasion! We have been listening to A Very Scary Solstice ["O tidings of madness and woe, madness and woe!] and this fits the mood perfectly! And thanks for the link explaining about Brumalia - fascinating. *holiday hugs*

Oh, thank you!

Now you've got me singing along. "It's the most horrible time of the year..." LOL.

Holiday hugs to you and yours, as well!
