Thread Name: Lyr Req: Christmas Day in the Workhouse
Subject: RE: Christmas Day in the Workhouse
I remeber Ed Asner reciting ths poem on a Christmas special he did some years back. He played the part of an estranged parent coming to terms with his sons and daughters and his terminal illness. His character atributed the poem to Rudyard Kipling which explains why I've never been able to find it in my Kipling collections.
