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

    To confuse you guys even more a doctor's surgery can be referred to as a "practice"

    do a google search for "medical practice"

    Oh guys, do you want to know what is confussing?
    Listening to @Lynne's explanation about the difference between:
    - to flicker
    - to sparkle
    - to shimmer
    - to glitter
    - to twinkle

    To be honest, I'm still, and even more, confused.

    Stars don't flicker or shimmer @april, but they can twinkle!
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,452 mod
    Can they glitter or shine, @mheredge ?
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 28,561 mod
    You can say that stars are shining. They can also glitter @april.
