Pretty and fragile, the freezing dew drops sparkle in millions, in the chilly December morning.

Dew drops are bubbling. Joybells are ringing. ​​Candles are gleaming​. ​Gladness is streaming out over all the earth... It's happy Christmas season. The cold December wind is blowing. It’s the wind of change​,​ quickly swooshing away the rusted autumn dust and sun-dried summer plans that were never meant to be, ushering in hope, peace, happy wishes and new dreams in the cold yet crystal clear bubbling dew drops before the new year dawns.

Pretty and fragile, the freezing dew drops sparkle in millions in the chilly December morning. They bubble ​on the green ​with beautiful dreams of mystical rainbow hues... The dreams are crystal clear. They are dreams of new mercies and happier days ahead. But to have them, you must let go of the old spring thoughts and walk the old dirt road no more.

Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
