Poetry: “Winter solstice”

The day important to my ancient ancestors, though the nature phenomenon affects me deeply even today.


Winter solstice


Soon arriving

Darkest day

When the night

It seems to stay


Turning point

For northern lands

When winter darkness

Grows less dim


Slowly sunlight

Rallies forth

Though the spring

Is far away


Light a fire

Beat your drum

Chase the goblins

From your door



When solstice comes

That night is conquered

By the day
