A Little Poem: To Remember What is True Forever

Tonight
we come together
to remember what is true forever

On this dark
and frozen night
we dedicate ourselves to light

In the ice
and in the wind
we are warmed by a fire within

That is why
we have come together
to remember what is true forever

In the cold
and in the dark
we will raise a timeless spark

On this longest
night of all
we will answer that ancient call

That tells us
to come together
to remember what is true forever

And to hold
in our hearts the light
that will see us through the darkest night

Though the ground
is frozen hard
we know the skies are filled with stars

And that is why
we have come together
to remember what is true forever

The wind that now
cuts our face
will return to a gentler place

And the light
that we find within
will grow stronger as the year begins

And so it is
we come together
to remember what is true forever

(for reading or chanting tonight, the night of the Winter Solstice)
