Duty, Honor, Country--Story of a Catholic Confederate Chaplain

An excellent post from:

A Song in October

"Clouds gather, treetops toss and sway;
But pour us wine, an old one!
That we may turn this dreary day
To golden, yes, to golden!
Autumn has come, but never fear,
Wait but a little while yet,
Spring will be here, the skies will clear,
And fields stand deep in violets.
The heavenly blue of fresh new days
Oh, friend, you must employ them
Before they pass away. Be brave!
Enjoy them; oh, enjoy them!"
- Theodor Storm

"O, wind..."

“O, wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind?”

--Percy Bysshe Shelley
