Monday Writes 134

Clatter of bones calls of days lost
Defeat in struggles cold gone lust
Mockery where light once burned
Empty sockets grin most, returned

Now all that was and this now past
Without blood hence now at last
Cage of support will rattle on anon
Till flesh returns or never lie be shun

Gather then crowns of seething green
Ever those boughs of steady wind seen
Bend thee in supple wondrous haze
Behold rapturous sight of dazzling gaze

Follow though the cold nights discourage
Enliven heart rekindle as day its courage

The Advent wreath, or Advent crown, is a Christian tradition that symbolizes the passage of the four weeks of Advent in the liturgical calendar of the Western church... usually a horizontal evergreen wreath with four candles... Beginning with the First Sunday of Advent, the lighting of a candle can be accompanied by a Bible reading, devotional time and prayers. An additional candle is lit during each subsequent week until, by the last Sunday before Christmas, all four candles are lit. Many Advent wreaths include a fifth, Christ candle which is lit at Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. The custom is observed both in family settings and at public church services.
