beautiful spruce at neighbor's window
so proud and foster in hundred lanterns
they say that the family will arrive in droves
worry whether enough space for them

and here is so quiet, so quiet
I read the yellowed letters pages
covered with a patina of time

turkey is lazily walking in the garden
and asks for survival

children are looking off frames on the walls
such small and joyful

trembling hands clinging memories to the heart
a wafer is crying on the plate
