Miracle

How splendid are the stars tonight,
How huge, how bright,
Making the dark hills glow
With silver light,
Leading our spirits once again
To Bethlehem
Where angels sing
Of ‘peace on earth, good will
Toward men’; where in the glory
Of the Christ Child’s smile
Hearts, that were touched
By winter’s icy breath, may know
The miracle of violets
Blooming in the snow!
