brave saint micha-el is my guide,
as free and fearless forth i ride
with courage of saint george of old
i dare to fight fierce dragons bold.

the festival of michaelmas was celebrated yesterday at our waldorf school, marking the beginning of autumn and the shortening of days. what a lovely sight it was to see all of the children on the playground...running in their golden robes of silk! all of the students at the school were invited to watch the fourth grade's performance of the traditional michaelmas play, and maya came home singing songs of micha-el. what a lovely way to commemorate this change of seasons. happy michaelmas to all!
