Michel Quoist – Uram, van időm

Uram, elindultam,kint mentek az emberek. Mentek,Jöttek,Siettek,Futottak.Futottak a kerékpárok,Futottak a szekerek,Futottak a teherautók,Futott az utca,Futott a város,Futott minden.

Alan Williams – Back Home With Us For Christmas

Across the festive store I see her A mother knelt beside her child Both conjured by the Christmas frippery Entranced by the promiscuous lights Dancing across their astonishment Silver drums and golden trumpets Sparkling peacocks and frosted fruits Rainbow garlands and brazen tinsel Stars and fairies awaiting their finest hour I cannot help but move … Olvass tovább
