The Longest Night
by Lee Billings
Age Group: Adult
The Longest Night
Last sunlight fades on the shortest day.
As cook fires give scent to lend our way.
Yule logs set to burn the night.
As make we marry by candle light.
Decorations hung of cedar's green.
Fills festive air with hope unseen.
Tables laden with a Yule day feast.
Cooked apples, nuts, and fallen beast.
Of harvested Grain we made good ale,
To warm our harts as we weave a tail.
We raise our cups to toast the year,
Of friends long gone and loves still near.
With mirth and good humor, with laughter and song,
We relax by the fire wile awaiting the dawn.
As darkness fades from the longest night,
We shake off the ale and welcome the light.
In great circle we gather give thanks to our god
Then back to our homes and the lands of nod
