One Single Impression: Stillness Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest Email Other Apps By SandyCarlson - December 18, 2010 Every Christmas Eve I light a candle And before bed Put it on the front step To burn. Every Christmas morning I step outside To marvel How deep and clean Can burn A single light If you leave it be.
