Winter Refuge

It’s the season for seeking out Warmth and Light,
For coming together, and children’s delight;
For calming our hearts to hear what is true,
For observing traditions, and making Love new.

The year’s been a long one, the hills have been steep,
With peace hard to come by, and faith hard to keep;
We may never have needed the hearthfire more,
Come in from the cold, open the door.
