Like snowflakes dithering in windy breeze,
Christmas mythologies descend on us
as they accumulated over time,
during two thousand years of stories, songs.
Christmas fables are a bright treasure chest
of happiness, disguised wisdom, and joy,
yet the best of this bejeweled legacy
remains the music of this glad season.
Music long preceded our languages.
One might argue music created us
in the image of friendship, even love.
As a child, I still recall a snowflake
landing on my nose with excited joy.
Let’s live the music of that joy today!
