Sentimental hogwash
His own heart laughed

And our hearts thrilled

Solstice

The Solstice burning bright / New Jersey / Dec. 2007

“We slipped out of the house noiselessly and found ourselves in the unutterable solemnity and strangeness of a dark night. It was a new experience, and our hearts thrilled and our nerves tingled to the charm of it. Never had we been abroad before at such an hour. The world around us was not the world of daylight. 'Twas an alien place, full of weird, evasive enchantment and magicry.”

~ Lucy Maud Montgomery in The Golden Road
