Ceremony Upon Candlemas Eve Poem by Robert Herrick

Ceremony Upon Candlemas Eve

Rating: 2.7


Down with the rosemary, and so
Down with the bays and misletoe;
Down with the holly, ivy, all
Wherewith ye dress'd the Christmas hall;
That so the superstitious find
No one least branch there left behind;
For look, how many leaves there be
Neglected there, maids, trust to me,
So many goblins you shall see.
