Where the Forest Murmers by Fiona Macleod
Our Elder Brother is a Spirit of Joy: there-
fore, in this new year, Rejoice!
In January the Spirit dreams,
And in February weaves a Rainbow,
And in March smiles through Rains,
And in April is clad in White and Green,
And in May is the Youth of the World,
And in June is a Glory,
And in July is in two Worlds,
And in August is a Colour,
And in September dreams of Beauty,
And in October Sighs,
And in November Wearieth,
And in December Sleeps.
"I am Beauty itself amid Beautiful Things."
