Even at night, the tulips show forth their glory.
Even in the dark, they dance and sing.
Bring out a light and you will find them
shouting their hallelujahs.
So, too, when the dismal descends,
may we do as well as these simple flowers.
When the light finds us,
let it reveal our enduring joy.

who escaped the Nazis with her family just before World War Two.
