“Expectans Expectavi”, by Anne RidlerThe candid freezing season again:Candle and cracker, needles of fir and frost;Carols that through the night air pass, piercingThe glassy husk of heart and heaven;Children’s faces white in the pane, bright in the tree-light.
And the waiting season again,That begs a crust and suffers joy vicariously:In bodily starvation now, in the spirit’s exile always.O might the hilarious reign of love begin, let inLike carols from the coldThe lost who crowd the pane, numb outcasts into welcome.Source: Collected Poems, Anne Ridler.
