On the year’s shortest day and longest night,
Where the Oak King battles to bring us the light,
Families gather for fun, festivities, and feast,
Bringing good cheer to the most and least.
Logs and candles burn happy and bright
To bring back the Sun with strength and might
Signaling the start of the new year to man and beast
To all corners north, south, west, and east.
To all Children of the Goddess today I invite
May you be blessed with all that you delight.
