This is the Inst hill. When w have
passed, it we will be beyond sight of the
city. The lights shine out a long blaze
behind us, as we turn for the last look.
There will be many miles of cloudy dark
ness ahead. We almost want to turn
back and clatter with quick hoof-beats
on the frosty stones, into those sparkling
rows of light that send a glow far into
the dark sky.
Butthcshining, fairy city will presently
grow dim. as the lights redden and
darken out, one by one darker with its
thick houses and black streets than oven
the long, bare road dropping into deep
hollows, where shaking bridges rumble
in the still night. You can make out
the darker shadows of clumps of willows
and hear the loud rustling of corn stocks.
There is no tramp of slouching foot
steps behind when you listen, and the
lights dropped here and there, far off, at
lonesome intervals, are soft, twinkling
beacon lights like htars that lead wander
ing feet to no no unkindly haven, no
shelter but that of a home.
And far away, at the end of the long
I'oad. lights are shining; softer, starrier,
in the little windows of the Sweedish
settlement, lights that will burn all this
Christmas night, and shine at morning
across lhe road whore the sleighs dance
by at four o'clock in the morning to the
"YriT service. And when the sleighs
come hack, with long, ringing chimes,
from church, the candles will still he
burning, as they are burning in Sweden,
along the roads where the sleighs are fly
ing under the great fir trees of the forest.
