Roundelay

Yule-Tide

‘Tis time to look at the world and cheer,
This the happiest time of the long year…
When snow and darkness seem so deep,
And all the world seems cold and dead.
For now the year begins to grow
As the sun yet, lies in the sky so low.

When snow and darkness seem so deep…
And all the world seems cold and dead,
We’ll light the log of sweet Yule-tide,
Roast our chestnuts and sing brightly…
Remembering spring, so close to us
As the sun yet, lies in the sky so low.

We’ll light the log of sweet Yule-tide,
Roast our chestnuts and sing brightly…
With our loved ones with our kin,
We augur the new year to begin…
Remembering spring, so close to us,
As the sun yet, lies in the sky so low.

With our loved ones with our kin,
We augur the new year to begin.
We’ll Feast and make the cold ice king fly!
Let’s sing our songs to the Eastern sky!
To the dawn of the year that’s begun to grow…
As the sun yet, lies in the sky so low.

  1. Excellent–and you even used “augur”, which I’d been mulling the last couple of days!

  2. Lovely poem, don’t forget tags and poetry @ your name.
