"Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds ways to kneel and kiss the ground." - Rumi


Little light in distant land
Guide me through the bleak midwinter
Illuminate the trodden path
And deliver me from the storm

Show to me your gentle warmth
Yet bold in the grip of night
And silence my aching bones
Echoing the moans adrift the wind

Little light in distant land
Brightly lit beyond impasse
Come and take me by the hand
Lest I suffer winter's wrath


The author's comments:
I wrote this in memory of my High School Choir's annual Madrigal Feast. The darkness lit only by candles and the still quiet voices singing "The Bleak Midwinter" really brought this to life for me.
