A magic world of Christmas Eve...

A Christmas Tree, lights, presents and showers of festoons
A happy fairy-tale soaring over sleeping childrens heads, and their mother Nora Helmer, cuddled in a chair
Glowing lights of the fairy kings crown entwined in Noras unstressed hair
Torvald Helmer, in a cloud of thawing and glistering snowflakes of words, carrying his sleeping wife in his arms

-My singing-bird, my lark Be at rest, and feel secure; I have broad wings to shelter you under You have no idea what a true mans heart is like, Nora

This tune overwhelms her She yearns for these words Shes flowing in the waves of love

She will hear them when shes desperate when her life is trampled and her heart is broken like a discarded Christmas Tree ball

But Christmas Eve is full of miracles!
And she is the greatest miracle of all!
