Today's Beautiful Gem: `In the Woods alone' by an anonymous author in Latin,
translated by Helen Waddell.

"I have been in the woods alone,
I have loved hidden places.
Tumult of men I shun
And the crowding faces.
Now the snow vanishes,
Out the leaves start,
The nightingale's singing:
Love's in the heart."

Om s'aantih: Peace! - J. K. Mohana Rao.
