The Winter of Light

Form; Ballad

As shards of blue the rays reach out
The stars of Yuletide night.
The midday moon reveals a pout
Here is the winter's light.
I call my love as Yuletide comes
And hold his hand in mine.
We dance to winter’s beating drums,
Around the season's pine.
As shards of blue the rays reach out
The stars of Yuletide night.
The midday moon reveals a pout
Here is the winter's light.
O hail the Holly King in song
That voices start to sing
A winter night that is so long
As we exchange a ring.
As shards of blue the rays reach out
The stars of Yuletide night.
The midday moon reveals a pout
Here is the winter's light.
To dance and sing is just the start
My lord beneath the bough
My love and me as one in heart
At Yule we made our vow.
As shards of blue the rays reach out
The stars of Yuletide night.
The midday moon reveals a pout
Here is the winter's light
