Biography of Caroline Hayward
Caroline Hayward was a Canadian Poet during the Victorian Period. She is best known for her poem, the Christmas Homes of England.
I stood in a princely hall, and where
Round me gather'd the brave and fair,
Music in softest strains flew by,
Flashing like gems was each radiant eye;
