Yule Fires

In ancient days the folk of old
When chilled with fright by winter’s cold
Did kindle up a great Yule Fire
With leaping flames in its great pyre


Yule fires light up the night
Yule fires bring us delight
Yule fires call back the Sun
and keep our hearts ever burning!

So to entice the waning Sun
To rise again and wider run
It’s fiery course across the sky
To warm them so they would not die


So we, whose minds now sense a chill
Of anger in the the “evil will”
the human conflict, hate, and strife
Which hold a menace over Life


Would kindle up a flame of love
That we within our hearts may move
in Yuletide joy, with love embrace
And thus abide in peace and grace
