Advent - Expectant

O come, O come, thou swallow small,
   responding to your infants' call,
   fly far and wide across the earth
  and end with hope our winter's dearth.

        Rejoice! Rejoice! A tiny bird
       shall show a truth that seems absurd.
        - Jim Cotter from Expectant - Verses for Advent, Cairns Publications

Welcome to my blog. I always love receiving comments; do feel free. If you're visiting from the A-Z challenge (or even if you're not!) could I thank you for your patience in using the dreaded captcha verification thingy. It's a pain, I know, but I've had problems with spam in the past and would rather keep Greenpatches as a junk-free zone.
