Poet's Notes about The Poem

Jan.2,2013: A Galejador climbs the selected pine tree during La Festa del Pi (The Festival of the Pine) in the village of Centelles in Barcelona on Dec.30. Early in the morning, men & women wear traditional costumes with the Catalan red hat known as Barretina & carry muskets as they walk into the forest to chop down a pine tree, load it on an ox cart and take it to the church in the village. The tree is decorated with bouquets of apples and wafers and hung inside the church.
