at o-dark thirty
a solsticial eclipse —
midday nap

. . . . . . . .

Even if tonight had not been the first full lunar eclipse occurring on the (northern) winter solstice in 372 years, I would still have had to create my own poem. Today's OED word of the day is 'word,' the citations for which run about 19 pages. Tomorrow being the shortest day of the year, I'll hope for a shorter entry from the boys at Oxford.
