a poem by Rainer Maria, Switzerland

There are those nights of white and wonder
wherein all has a silver shine,
with many a gleaming star - a sign
as though to guide the shepherds yonder
towards a new infant divine.

Widespread, as under diamond layers,
appear both meadows and the sea,
and in the hearts in dreamlike glee
a faith ascends, that needs no prayers,
performing wonders silently.
