10 December





oh christmas tree, oh christmas tree

of all the trees most lovely



in the early morning just before the sun comes up

or at twilight when the darkness steals into our little house

i sit in hushed softness

brought on by the wondrous awe

of tiny white lights in an evergreen tree
and for a time the natural world is standing in my living room
sharing its beauty

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
