the blessing of winter

“We give thanks for the blessing of winter:

Season to cherish the heart.

To make warmth and quiet for the heart.

To make soups and broths for the heart.

To cook for the heart and read for the heart.

To curl up softly and nestle with the heart.

To sleep deeply and gently at one with the heart.

To dream with the heart.

To spend time with the heart.

A long, long, time of peace with the heart.

We give thanks for the blessing of winter:

Season to cherish the heart.

Amen.”

(From When I talk to You by Michael Leunig)
