The feast of the Epiphany
“Goose,
ham,
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,
Smyrna figs,
custard topped with grated nutmeg,
a bowl of chocolates . . .
oranges,
American apples . . . with port,
dark sherry,
stout,
ale and minerals.”*

Gabriel Conroy
The Lass of Aughrim
Gretta's dead
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

This is wonderful. There is a section of "Angela's Ashes" when McCourt has his students read recipes like they were poems. I flashed on that a bit as I read this.

I also learned a new term: Little Woman's Christmas. Thank you.
