A Feast of Lanterns, by L. Cranmer-Byng, , at sacred-texts.com
CIRCA A.D. 1100
Sunbeams through twinkling pinewoods cast
Their shadows on my window screen.
A night of clouds and rain is past
And, newly blue and freshly green,
The Dawn rebuilds my world at last.
Pear-tree and plum-tree shed their burden sweet,
And children's happy voices rouse the street.
