Wise words about holidays

The holiest of all holidays are those Kept by ourselves in silence and apart;

The secret anniversaries of the heart, When the full river of feeling overflows;

The happy days unclouded to their close;

The sudden joys that out of darkness start

As flames from ashes; swift desires that dart

Like swallows singing down each wind that blows!

From "Holidays" by poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882).
