    Always on Christmas night there was music. An uncle played the fiddle, a cousin sang "Cherry Ripe," and another uncle sang "Drake's Drum." It was very warm in the little house. Auntie Hannah, who had got on to the parsnip wine, sang a song about Bleeding Hearts and Death, and then another in which she said her heart was like a Bird's Nest; and then everybody laughed again; and then I went to bed. Looking through my bedroom window, out into the moonlight and the unending smoke-colored snow, I could see the lights in the windows of all the other houses on our hill and hear the music rising from them up the long, steady falling night. I turned the gas down, I got into bed. I said some words to the close and holy darkness, and then I slept.

    Dylan Thomas ... the poet ;)

  2. Thanks, Rudi. BTW, Thomas' Christmas night sounds just like ours here except it's an emo kid sans parsnip wine, singing about bleeding and death.


Your comments add to the beauty...thanks in advance for your kindness.
