When the snow lay round about …

Good King Wenceslas last looked out,
On the feast of Stephen,
When the snow lay round about
Deep and crisp and even.
Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel,
When a poor man came in sight
Gathering winter fuel.

Christmas Carol

  1. I went to Wenceslas square in Prague, and as a Stephen it was a bit disappointing!! I love the refection photos though

    • However, it must be a great experience to visit the historic place. I’ve seen a night scene of Wenceslas Square, it’s a beautiful sight!!
      … as a Stephen??

      • Stephen is my first name, as in the carol about King Wenceslas and the feast of Stephen (or Boxing Day as its is better known)

      • Thank you for the explanation, Stephen. It was one of my guesses, the second was, that you sang Carols.
        Wish you some lovely days!!

  2. Oh, Hannah, your photos capture the cold of winter so well. Good king Wenceslas is one of my family’s favorite carols; each person sings a different voice with the parts coming together on the last verse. it’s very moving.
