Catherine & Michael  חֲזק וּבָרוּךְ  
A Sonnet
By Elizabeth Bishop

I am in need of music that would flow
Over my fretful, feeling finger-tips,
Over my bitter-tainted, trembling lips,
With melody, deep, clear, and liquid-slow.
Oh, for the healing swaying, old and low,
Of some song sung to rest the tired dead,
A song to fall like water on my head,
And over quivering limbs, dream flushed to glow!

There is a magic made by melody:
A spell of rest, and quiet breath, and cool
Heart, that sinks through fading colors deep
To the subaqueous stillness of the sea,
And floats forever in a moon-green pool,
Held in the arms of rhythm and of sleep.
Let's all sail to Key Largo, away from the state mandated social isolation and bitter winter, if only in our minds : )
Catchy tune and easy to whistle

Composed by Jean-Baptiste, Baron ("Toots") Thielemans

If any Christmas song also makes you want to go into battle, this is it
