But for Robert Herrick, many of the Christmas customs celebrated in the 1600s might not be known today. But in "Hesperides and His Noble Numbers," this 17th century poet and priest gave insights into many of the practices and superstitions of those days. The 23 poems in this collection range from Christmas Eve – and the practice of bringing in the Yule Log – through Candlemas, the end of the Christmastide, when we are admonished: “Down with the rosemary and bays.”
This collection is one of a several Christmas poetry collections from this editor. Please visit my web site for details about these collections, as well as many more poems, prose, hymns, and carols of Christmas.
