Epigram Of The Muses On The Christmas Season

[in memory of the German poet, Novalis; and

the Russian poet, Boris Pasternak]

 

(November 20th, 1976 through January 2, 1977)

 

During the Holidays, we see complete
and unaviodably meant transformation
of mundane life into an expectation
of spiritual and ancient revelation;
and thus, in the excitement's joy, we meet---
without the interference of deceit---
to join each other in high celebration,
as we approach the hour with stockinged feet.
And though the worldly years have come and went,
Christmas bestows the same Grace in Advent.
