Season's Greetings!




















The wind in the winter white forest
urges the snowflakes along like a shepherd,
and many a fir tree senses
how soon holy and sacredly lighted she will be,
and so listens carefully. She extends her branches
towards the white paths – ever ready,
resisting the wind and growing towards
that great night of glory.


"Advent" by Rainer Maria Rilke (1898)
