New Christmas Poetry

Of Christmas and the winter festivals it was Sir Walter Scott who famously wrote:

'Twas Christmas told the merriest tale;
A Christmas gambol oft would cheer
A poor man's heart through half the year.

It is as true today as it was then and in the olden times  which he described. There is no doubt that a good winter tale steals the attention and the hearts of its audience.  Every writer has to at some point envy the work of their preceding contemporaries and wish that a favorite winter story had flowed from the nib of their pen. Should they live and compose long enough they might eventually have a Christmas tale to their credit.

The story at the center of all these tales is the greatest ever told.  It is the fulfillment of the most complex prophecy, and we are all here because of it, and share in the celebration as Christians have world wide since Christ’s birth.

From Koru on the west facing slope of the Rift Valley in Kenya, to Oxford with its colleges in the center of England, to the United States with its cold northern lake side cities and on to California with its endless summer, and far off in Australia where the seasons are reversed, Christmas is kept and stories are told. From all of them inspiration has been gathered to fill out these pages and help us to see the reason for the poems.

Available on Amazon here is my latest collection ready for the coming winter season!

Doing a business analytics course has its own set of benefits. Apart from the fact that it is one of the most hyped courses, the annual salary base of a business analyst makes business analytics course much in demand. The annual base salary of a business data analyst is somewhere above $50k. And that’s just the starting point.
