To Warm a Winter’s Night

A Leaf From The Tree of Songs

By Adam Christianson

When harpers once in wooden hall
A shining chord would strike
Their songs like arrows pierced the soul
Of great and low alike

Aglow by hearth and candleflame
From burning branch or ember
The mist of all their music sang
As if to ask in wonder

Is there a moment quite as keen
Or memory as bright 
As light and fire and music sweet
To warm the winter’s night?
