Songs for Christmas, #2: “Love Brings”

Moonlit Stroll in Winter, Reba and Dave Williams Collection, c. 1880s, via the National Gallery of Art, open access

“Love Brings”

Love brings us a reprieve,
      sometimes brief,
      sometimes everlasting,
from the darkness
      of everyday life.

Love brings us a beam,
           a beam of hope,
in the dead of winter.
