I may not go tonight to Bethlehem
A very lovely text by a very lovely woman. Emily Pauline Johnson (1861-1913) was a prominent Canadian actress and woman of letters. Of mixed Mohawk and English ancestry, she was very proud of her Native American roots and often went by her Mohawk name of Tekahionwake. Her Christmas poem is here set to the Maori Farewell Song, "Po Atarau."
