Holly has written a lovely poem for today’s Advent post – 23 December 2014.
In sadness or in joy
“Do you care for one
Who does not care for you?
Do you love one
Who does not love you?
In sadness or in joy”
Sings the pretty bird who cries
“Sing a song of summer in
Mid-spring’s winter joy.”
“Who loves thee? Who loves thee?”
I cry and cry again,
“For I, the pitiful bird, shall
Try and try again.
Do I love thee? Do I love thee?”
I cry in deep despair.
“For I, the pretty pitiful bird shall
Cry and cry again.
Now tis the end of mid-spring-summer-winter joy”
So I burrow my tearful winter tears
In soothing blankets warm.
