then bringing it in to decorate the house at Christmas . . .
and making miniature wreaths . . .
and at last, taking it all down again . . .
"Down with the rosemary . . .
[ . . .it's time . . . ]
To re-adorn the house.
Thus times do shift; each thing its turn does hold ;
New things succeed, as former things grow old."
from "Ceremonies for Candlemas Eve"
