This post is a greeting to all who are having hard times, and particularly to one of my dearest people for whom I know that principally reads my blog (though I am not sure whether she is reading it right now).
The quoted verses are from the old Welsh song All Through the Night.
"Deep the silence round us spreading,
All through the night;
Dark the path that we are treading,
All through the night...
Though our hearts be wrapt in sorrow,
From the hope of dawn we borrow
Promise of a glad tomorrow,
All through the night."
The entire song is here.
