Midwinter

Feel us now, we are the stars
Feel us now, we are the sea
Feel us now as the magic flowing within your heart
We are the wind that kisses the trees

We come softly through the night
As evening falls behind us
Our footsteps leave no mark upon the snow
Let your spirit go, it will find us

We come adorned in spider web and dew
Through woodland to the meadow
We come luminous and bright
Dancing with the light and the shadow…

The winter moon is calling us to play
A sacred light to guide us
The wild music leads us in a trance
Spinning to the dances inside us
The air is cold and echoes with the sound
Of laughter rising higher

We weave a music curiously pure
A crystal song suspended
We fly on wings diaphanous as light
Dancing till the long night is ended
We come ancient as the moon
As new as every season
We come as fire, as icicle, as leaf
Suspend your disbelief and your reason

Feel us now surrounding you
We are the wind that kisses the trees
Feel us now inside of you
A fairy heart that’s guiding you home….

The Land Beside the Sea

The land beside the sea lies prisoned in the snow.
Along the frozen shore, chill winds of winter blow.
Dawn creeps across the sky, but still the light is gray.
And swiftly falls the dark, until the shortest day.

But gentle comes the breeze across the western sea.
To warm the sleeping earth and waken branch and tree.
Green grow the leaves at last in sudden joyful spring.
As oak and apple bloom and all the small birds sing.

So welcome to the New Year, as the old year dies.
And winter falls away, so summer’s sun may rise.
Joy fills your hearts and homes, as brightness fills the day.
And hope and love forever, drive the dark away.

Solstice Evergreen

Song: Solstice Evergreen
Artist: Spiral Dance
Album: The Quickening

It came as a scene
From an old picture postcard
Of victorian ladies
With skates on their feet

Of ponds frozen over
And boughs hung with ice-tips
And through frosty panes
Watch the snow and the sleet

And the smoke ventured out
From soot blackened chimmneys
And shimmered beneath
An icy cold moon

The Solstice Teaches Us

THE SOLSTICE TEACHES US

By David Breeden

The Solstices teach us
that darkness comes,
that darkness goes.

The Solstices teach us
that light comes,
that light goes.

The Solstices teach us,
calmly, silently, to be
calm, silent. Learning.

The Solstices teach us
as we circle the sun
that everything flies.

The Solstices teach us
to remember the dark,
to remember the light,
to remember time.
The seasons. And love
as we circle the sun.

Solstice Carol

(By The Wyrd Sisters)

A Fire is burning
The long night draws near
All who need comfort
Are welcome by here
We’ll dance ‘neath the stars
And toast the past year
For the spirit of solstice
Is still living here

We’ll count all our blessings
While the mother lays down
With the snow as her blanket
Covering the ground
Thanks to the mother
For the life that she bring
She’ll waken to warm us
Again in the spring

The poor and the hungry
The sick and the lost
These are our children
No matter the cost
Come by the fire
The harvest to share
For the spirit of solstice
Is still living here

A Fire is burning
The long night draws near
All who need comfort
Are welcome by here
We’ll dance ‘neath the stars
And toast the past year
For the spirit of solstice
Is still living here

The spirit of solstice
Is still living here
