Classic: Dylan Thomas

One Christmas was so much like another, in those years around the sea-town corner now and out of all sound except the distant speaking of the voices I sometimes hear a moment before sleep, that I can never remember whether it snowed for six days and six nights when I was twelve or whether it snowed for twelve days and twelve nights when I was six.

Read the rest of A Child's Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas.

Reading a Child's Christmas in Wales is wonderful, but since Thomas wrote so much for the ear, hearing it read aloud by good readers is even better.

You're right.

I've also noticed how much "A Christmas Carol" is crafted to be read aloud.
