December is here!

I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.

'We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,'
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.

~~ Oliver Herford ~~

Ha! Just this morning I was noting how warm it is for the first day of December and was rejoicing because "no matter how cold it gets now, it's still only two months until the first signs of spring." :) November was more like March this year where I live.

What a lovely little poem. It won't be long now until the days start getting lighter, that always brings promise. I just love the way your blog is developing.
