Beautiful December

Now, when the garden awaits the return of spring
Now, when the silence is deep and blue
Now, when the winter has cast her spell again
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Here, where the snow is as soft as a woolly lamb
Here, where the nightfall is deep and blue,
Here, where the stars are so bright, you reach for them
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Child, may you sleep in gentle peace tonight
Dream of songs that rise on silken wings!
When you wake, enchanted by the snowspun light
Sing the songs that came to you in dreams,
Your beautiful December dreams

New word - Coffice

A coffice is a cafe that is being used for office work.

Seemingly more and more of us are doing our work in cafes - coffice work I guess.

    Once I got a coffice correction of my paper in German. I wouldn't say it was a great job. A German lady substituted das Dialog for der Dialog, und dergleichen mehr. Heat was insupportable and you could hear deafening music around. :) :) :)
    My essay was decidedly worse than before.

    Der Dialog is of course right, but you could have written it in Swiss`s dialect, because they say to the Tram das Tram hehe, at least around Basel.

    Well, I don't think a proofreader would accept it. :) :) :)

    Is coffice in the Oxford English Dictionary yet? If not, I'm very sure it soon will be.
