I read these lines in Albert’s poem last December, and made a note to share them with you this year. They are just a bit of the whole, which is titled: “A CHRISTMAS STORY.”
Though winter has only just begun.
Something grey and heavy weighs
Upon us. It’s in the air.
What does it take for a year to glow
Even at the end?
His elaboration on “something grey” is vivid and all too familiar; it was familiar even last winter! And the description of how to break free of the weight — well, it’s worth a click.
