The Arrival

Sensus fideii, Lord
Anticipation resounds
Four candle flames dance
Stars lamp His divinity
Hark, the Herald Angels Sing!

    John, I'm not sure how I missed this one, but it's fantastic. I feel the reverence and awe in this piece. Just lovely. Oh, by the way, if you cook even half as well as you write, I'd better start a good exercise regimen now! So...I was thinking maybe a strawberry white tea to go with the chocolate coated scones. Hmmm?DG
