內容簡介


一年中日照最短的一天,在日落結束後,人們聚集在一塊,一同為漫長的黑夜做準備。除了升火與點蠟燭外,音樂的陪伴,在看似無窮盡的黑夜中也是一道閃耀的光芒。

一本描述我們已不再熟悉的過去,藉由優美具有詩意的插圖,一個曾經守著長夜,期待著另一個黎明到來的時光,讓我們重溫那個曾經對光明渴望的年代,過了日照時間最短的這一天,代表之後的日照時間就會逐漸增加,人們也因此聚集慶祝白晝變長的喜悅。

So the shortest day came, and the year died... As the sun set on the shortest day of the year, early people would gather to prepare for the long night ahead. They built fires and lit candles. They played music, bringing their own light to the darkness, while wondering if the sun would ever rise again... Written for a theatrical production that has become a ritual in itself, Susan Cooper's poem The Shortest Day captures the magic behind the returning of the light, the yearning for traditions that connect us with generations that have gone before - and the hope for peace that we carry into the future. Richly illuminated by Carson Ellis, this beautiful book evokes the joy and community found in the ongoing mystery of life when we celebrate light, thankfulness, and festivity at a time of rebirth. Welcome Yule!
