Assunto:  It Came Upon A/The Midnight Clear
 
Mensagem:  According to The Free Dictionary website, Edmund Sears (1810--1876) wrote the famous carol "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear." But why did Mr. Sears put the adj. "Clear" after the noun "Midnight"? Why in such a fashion?

A thousand ESL inquiring minds want to know.
