Winter Song

 

Wild music is abroad . . .

Chill airs and wintry winds! My ear

Has grown familiar with your song;

I hear it in the opening year,

I listen, and it cheers me long.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Woods in Winter”

 

Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.

The Secret of Beauty

 

“There’s nothing fair nor beautiful, but takes

Something from thee, that makes it beautiful.”

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

. . . which, of course, means that beauty is within you.

Look for the beauty all around you this week. It’s a sign of the beauty in your own spirit.

Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.
