A Country Christmas Eve (1976 Chapbook)
On a solitary vigil so cold and fair
by Bill Grace
The air took feeling from my face
And gave a glowing in its place,
I saw snow glistening upon the fields
And heard the ringing silence of the night.
Not a breath of wind stirred the snow to dance
As a renegade star put the moon to shame
A distant silver fire that lit the blue night sky.
