A college classmate, Ann Harrington, had a poem selected for the Writer's Almanac a couple of days ago.

That sound you hear comes from the collision of the written word with my solar plexus.

It is really an advent carol, but almost entirely unknown, I think. About its origins Mudcat.org says:
John Taylor, Postbridge aged 85, Tune not recorded in Killerton Ms but can be found in the Rough Ms. Baring-Gould gives a second version which he says is closer to the broadside ballad.
K3 p297
from Sabine Baring-Gould and the folk songs of South-West England


The gorgeous version I have is by Jennifer Cutting's Ocean Orchestra (here you can hear small sample).

I found another artist who put the whole song online, giving it a different title.



Here are the lyrics of the version I know )
