At the darkest time of the year,
The Swedes celebrate St. Lucia
A festival of light
Traditionally, the oldest girl dons a crown of candles
and makes her way through the house with coffee and buns
for the family
And we have a Lucy!
Although she's not Swedish
But she is Lutheran
(does that count?)
And to celebrate, I baked some cookies for her
My angel cutter
And two of the St. Lucia cookies
were boxed up and sent off to Minnesota
for Grandgirl Lucy!
And tomorrow we shall have
(St. Lucy’s Buns)
To be eaten for breakfast
Alas, not brought by a young girl
in a white gown, with a red sash
And a candle crown
But by me!
Crownless, gownless, sashless!
But we shall enjoy these buns nonetheless
And they shall be a tradition every December 13 at Linderhof!
