Travel Haiku - Christmas at Tivoli Gardens (Copenhagen, Denmark)


Christmas Tivoli Gardens
all my dreams
lightened up

Christmas Tivoli Gardens
each of the lights laps
up my worries

Christmas Tivoli Gardens
i let go of myself in
the miles of lights

From mid-November through December, Copenhagen's Tivoli Gardens is lit with miles of lights—literally miles. The park's original lights were created by John Loring, Tiffany & Co.'s head designer, and there are thousands of them—1,800 chains for the willows, three miles for all of the Christmas trees, and another 3,281 feet for the city's buildings. Ride the rides, then shop and nibble at more than 70 Christmas stalls, or catch a performance at one of the music and theater halls.

    Nice work, John. I havent been to Tivoli at Christmas, but it is indeed a lovely place even in the summer when the lights twinkle up the short nights in Denmark.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
