The chill breath of winter touches us,
As blankets of snow cover the ground.
With the glow of moonlight upon them,
It’s like diamond sparkles all around.
Inside the room is cozy and warm,
The scent of evergreen wafts from the fire.
Surrounded by love and family,
I’ve got all that I could desire.
Sleigh bells jingle from the front porch,
As my coveners decorate outside.
They’ve no need of blankets,
They have the warmth of love inside.
In my home, we all gather round,
And with Pagan carols our voices ring.
Then we settle down to enjoy the tale,
Of the Oaken Lord and the Holly King.
For our holiday is quite different,
Then the cowan Christmas night.
We cast our Circle, join together,
And welcome the return of Light.
Then we sit and share the feast,
As we pass bread and wine around.
As blessings from mingled voices…
“Never hunger,” “Never thirst” abound.
All too soon the rite is ended,
And we greet the newborn day.
As we clasp hands together,
This wish we send your way….
It no matters your tradition,
Be you family, friend, or guest.
We wish you joy and peace,
And may your Yule be Blessed!!
