I love the solstice, the days are getting longer!
Below is a poem by John Caddy:
Snow and ice and whelming dark
sink mind and heart until
long Solstice night dies again.
Even beneath snow and ice
the elder greens of moss
stay bright, knowing in each cell
that growing days will once more
beat back dark, wake spirits,
bathe each waiting green in light.
