December

"December is the year in age and wisdom, a woman with starlight in her frosted hair and a snowflake on her cheek and a sprig of holly on her coat.  The light in her blue eyes is young as this morning and old as time.  She has known youth and love and age and heartbreak, and she still can smile, knowing that life is not all of either.  She is December, which is a kind of summation not only of one year but of all years' ending."         Hal Borland

This is a lovely quote that I am not familiar with...just what I love about reading blogs...always finding new things. Thanks!
