Today it is the shortest day
Midwinter, that’s a fact
Followed by the longest night
Solstice to be exact

It’s something I look forward to
for once it’s been and gone
night-time hours get shorter
and it won’t be all that long
Before the Springtime comes again
and warmth returns once more
Coupled with the sunshine
which we all love and adore
