Happy St. Lucia's Day

Santa Lucia

Night walks with heavy tread
round farm and byre,
dark sun-forsaken earth
shadows attire.
Then in our winter gloom
candlelight fills the room:
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!

Silent and dark the night
now hear descending
rustle of wings in flight,
all darkness ending.
Then she comes, dressed in white,
head wreathed in candles bright:
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!

Shadows will soon be gone
from earth’s dark valley
wonderful words anon
us cheer and rally.
Day will soon dawn anew
in skies of rosy hue:
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia

Today is St. Lucia's Day.... I made this sweet embroidery just for the occassion. I found a similar piece done by Block A Day and just had to have one too! So I made a pattern as best as I could ... And here you have it.  Isn't she a sweety???

I will post later tonight about how we celebrated
 and to show you my little St. Lucia.
