An inspiring collection of poems in the religious vein that explores the nature of Advent, the season just before the coming of Christ. The collection further explores areas such as the role of nature, mysticism, and the experiences of humans in their communities. The theme of Night predominates, but a vein of humour also runs through the work, such as the verse concerning the lowly cockroach. The poet deals with matters such as prayer, meditation, and communion with the Unknown. He also explores the common bond that exists between man and his fellow creatures. He also draws on the universal themes reflected in various parables and symbolism.
