12/3 MN Reads: "Christmas Here in Northern Lands" by Chuck Haavik, illustrated by Aaron Kloss

Dec 3, 2015

Through dark December solstice nights
We learn to love and seek the light
Where Christmas light abounds
And all around is found ...

Watching alone under cool white stars
And a soft winter moon
That fill the trees on drifting hills
With lovely pale December light,
The silent gift of winter night
That calls us all to come away,
to rest awhile
And wait.
