|The feast of the Epiphany
spiced beef . . .
two little minsters of jelly, red and yellow;
a shallow dish full of blocks of blancmange and red jam . . .
Purple raisins and peeled almonds,
custard topped with grated nutmeg,
a bowl of chocolates . . .
American apples . . . with port,
ale and minerals.”*
The Lass of Aughrim
They are feasting
at the Gresham in 2012
Dressed in feathers
and long coats
Snow is not drifting
Nollaig na mBan
* From the Dead James Joyce
