December 22

Sure on this Shining Night
poem by James Agee,  arranged by Samuel Barber,
performed by Gerald Finley
and also by The Joyful Company of Singers

Sure on this shining night
Of star-made shadows round
Kindness must watch for me
This side the ground

The late year lies down the north,
All is healed, all is health
High summer holds the earth,
Hearts all whole

Sure on this shining night
I weep for wonder
Wandr’ing far alone
Of shadows on the stars.
