Quiet Christmas Poetry is a small collection, which includes this poem.
They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
He that goeth forth and weepeth,
bearing precious seed,
shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,
bringing his sheaves with him.
Psalm 126: 5-6 (KJV)

for wise men to follow,
to top my flimsy tree–
On a drift of air
that circles the globe
from heart to heart,
continent to continent–
