  •  I would have posted the following to C&J today (5+ / 0-)

    but I am off the computer by the time the Friday night one is posted.  So, in celebration of the birthday of the great soprano lieder singer, Elly Ameling, and with empathy for all those mourning or letting go, the following:

    The English translation of the lyrics:

    Holy night, you sink down;
    The dreams flow down, too,
    Like your moonlight through the rooms,
    Through the people's silent chests.
    They listen softly with desire;
    They call, when day awakens:
    Come back, holy night!
    Sweet dreams, come back!

    Ancora Impara--Michelangelo
