Welcome Yule!

A number of people on my flist seem to have covered my favorite Yule poem/invocation, so something almost as good:

Land of Light

O sleep in peace you valleys and hills
Be safe be free as the breeze
The north wind of fear like a banshee howled
And she drove you down on your knees to pray
She drove you down on your knees

Lift up your head to the morning light
The fight o'er darkness is won
And feast your eyes on the land you love
Its life returning with the sun behold
Its life returning with the sun

And the morning walks proud, shining out like a flame
No evil could subdue
You open up your arms in friendship and joy
To welcome in the new born day
To welcome in the new

May the spirit so strong in the shadow and storm
Hold fast to what is right
And surely as you breathe the gentle air of peace
This land shall shelter in the light of love
This land shall shelter in the light

-The Tannahill Weavers

Brightest and warmest blessings as the light returns!

Happy Yule to you and yours!

Brightest of blessings my friend.

The Shortest Day is ritual to me at this point - which lends it power, but it lacks the energy of the new way of looking at something. Seeing this - of similar sentiment, but differently put - is really, really nice. Thanks! And Welcome Yule!
