“Memory”, by Eliju Vedder

We all go through them–long stormy nights when all we want to do is curl up under the covers and wait for morning light to come.  From poets and theologians, to song-writers and painters, the dark night has been a repeated theme.   I cannot write upon this today, so I will let others speak.

And Lorena McKennitt wrote this moving song based on the poem.

Inspired by the Letter N at the Soul Food Cafe and the word Storm at the Daily Post.
