Little Town of Highbury ????

Blurb: What happens in Highbury while Mr. Knightley celebrates Christmas in Donwell? To the tune of the Christmas carol, "O Little Town of Bethlehem."

Last year, I realized that Emma was the only JA novel that I hadn't written a Christmas carol for, so that meant I absolutely had to do it this year. And the best way to make something difficult is to make it non-negotiable. I almost didn't come up with anything, so I'm pleased to have come up with this at what feels like the last minute.

O Little Town of Highbury


O little town of Highbury,
How quiet you must seem
When down the road at near Donwell
A party gathers steam.

Yet in thy dark streets soundeth
The evidence of mirth.
With song and dance, and games of chance
You fĂȘte the Savior's birth.


At Donwell is a party
For Knightley's closest peers.
But not all in Highbury
May travel in that sphere.

Yet Donwell holds no patents
On feasts or jollity,
So Highbury may celebrate
Without Mr. Knightley.


O blessed folk of Highbury,
You revel as you may!
Raise your voice and raise your glass
To one who's born this day.

I hear your measured laughter
Which great glad tidings tell.
Your inner joy is bursting forth
On this English Noel.
