Yule

Published December 20, 2021 by Naomi Rettig

Midwinter is here!

Let’s celebrate Yule!

Collect the best logs

To ignite as fuel,

Watch the flames flicker

In hypnotic motion,

Drink wine from goblets,

A winter potion.

Sing as loud as you can

So the heavens can hear you.

Dip crusty baked bread

Into gooey fondue.

Adorn homes with leaves

Of glorious green.

Take a break, relax

From a fast routine.

Dance as though possessed

With love and joy and hope.

Even try to channel

A disco antelope.

Celebrate your love,

Memories, gratitude,

Humility, hope,

Peace and solitude.

Rejoice in these gifts

Which you have inside

And enjoy yourself

In this blest Yuletide.
