Merry Christmas!

Everyone suddenly burst out singing;

And I was filled with such delight

As prisoned birds must find in freedom

Winging wildly across the white

Orchards and dark green fields; on – on – and out of sight.

Everyone’s voice was suddenly lifted;

And beauty came like the setting sun:

My heart was shaken with tears, and horror

Drifted away…O, but Everyone

Was a bird; and the song was wordless; the singing

will never be done.

– Siegfried Sassoon, “Everyone Sang”
