about

A song for the Winter Solstice, and the return of the light.

lyrics

When the Frost King wraps his frozen fingers
Around his icy flask of gloom
And drinks a mighty draft to all that lingers
Long after spring’s blush is through

When hope huddles in the shadowed corner
Casting furtive glances at the door
Warm your heart around the fires of friendship
Laughter, your shelter in the storm

No long night can hold you down
And bind you in the darkness.
You are a torch, you cast your light
A shining spear into the dawn

When the Ice Queen ensnares the world in silence
A blanket of foreboding evermore
With a bitter heart she beckons your compliance
The wolf is howling at the door

May the wood fires unfurl their smoky tendrils
Easing the chill that grips your bones
Ignite the flame in every poet’s promise
Revel in the Sun’s returning home


No long night can hold you down
And bind you in the darkness.
You are a torch, you cast your light
A shining spear into the dawn

No long night can hold us down
And bind us in the darkness.
We are a torch, we cast our light
Shining spears into the dawn
