Eugene Field, Holly & Ivy Untitled
As a resident of St. Louis, Missouri, I am particularly proud of Eugene Field, who lived in this city, and whose house is now a museum. He is best known as a writer of children's books and of humorous essays, but here is his foray into writing a "Holly and Ivy" carol for Christmas a genre that was popular in medieval times. The English is perhaps a little archaic, but in a sense this adds to the authenticity of something that was clearly intended to hearken back to an earlier age.
