Old Days, Old Ways.


'Ettie Yeo' wrote these words for Christmas
Over a hundred years ago.
She had them printed on Christmas cards
 And sent them to people she happened to know.
Ettie-Beatrice was her full name,
The Mother of my Mother-in-law,
And so Great-Grandmother to my children,
But somebody they never saw.
So changed the language and the feeling!
Words like these now don't exist!
But when I read I sort of fancy
That I was on her Christmas List.

More seasonal artistry from my husband's family here:

See tomorrow's blog for a Christmas entertainment.
