Today I begin my series of posts for Advent, in which I read each day’s poem to accompany my Advent Anthology from Canterbury Press Waiting on the Word, alongside a series of reflective images kindly provided by Lancia Smith. You can enjoy these and more on her Excellent Website Cultivating the True the Good and the Beautiful.
Today’s poem, the first in our series, is Christina Rosetti’s ‘Advent Sunday’. You can click on the title or the ‘play’ button to hear me read it and you can find the words, and a short reflective essay on this poem in Waiting on the Word, which is now also available on Kindle. Tomorrow, we have a pause for breath before the sequence in the book resumes on 1st December, but I shall still offer one of Lancia’s images here and an accompanying poem.
