Tis the solstice of the winter
When the days are dark and long;
The light is dim and the air is cold
The north wind blows a lonely song.
The sun hangs low in the distant sky
Snow blankets the ground of frost;
Ice forms on top of the lakes and ponds
As the warmth from the sun feels lost.
Bring on the winter months with glee
This is the season that keeps us chilly;
Sip a hot drink or a warm bowl of soup
Do something that makes you feel silly.
Trust the daylight will increase again
In the upcoming months of the New Year;
Fill your spirit with joy and laughter
Celebrate this winter solstice with cheer.
