    How fortunate I came to soup blog today. I believe Longfellow is my favorite poet. I did not know the story behind his beard only that in pictures before his second wife's death he was clean shaven. Lines from the Children' Hour come to me every now and again. I read it to my mother when she was sick before her death. It was a lifelong favorite of hers. I may know that and Psalm of Life by heart.

    What a sad, yet heartfelt story of a courageous survival through difficult times. It puts so much more meaning to the words of a Christmas carol, which we might otherwise, take for granted. Thanks for sharing this amazing story.

    Craig, thank you for sharing this. It is beautiful indeed to know the background of this carol. I've always gleaned comfort from the thought that some of the best work in the fields of art, music, and literature come from those who have suffered the most, be it a tragic event or a mental illness. There is beauty in brokenness. It comforts me because I battle depression. Some days....I just want to crawl up in bed and shut the world out and just....BE. Other times, I can be the life of the party. It's a difficult existence, but I know that even from my broken state, beauty can come- a very comforting thought, indeed. Thanks for sharing. It has touched my heart.
