Christmas, Post and Poems – Image of the Month

This stamp from our 2003 Christmas series and the poem in the post below are part of a few we have picked out to celebrate the Christmas season. They are on display from the 6th December in one of our cases in the An Post Museum in the GPO.

I saw a Stable

2003 Christmas Stamps wordpress
I saw a stable, low and very bare,
A little child in a manger.
The oxen knew Him, had Him in their care,
To men He was a stranger.
The safety of the world was lying there.
And the world’s danger.
– Mary Coleridge
