James Schuyle - “December”
"... Schuyler’s poem is also one of the best 'Christmas in New York' poems that I can think of, as it captures so vividly the distinctive feeling of a wintry December dusk in the city. Here is 'December' by James Schuyler, which appeared in his first book, Freely Espousing (1969). You can also hear Schuyler read the poem himself in this audio recording at PennSound. May you all enjoy that 'calm secret exultation of the spirit that tastes like Sealtest eggnog' too — happy holidays!"
