The Longest Night

22 Dec
The longest night 
Of the year,
To the ancient pagans
It was something to fear.

But at last
There came the morn,
And they rejoiced 
That the sun was reborn.

Over time they 
Created many different rites,
To push back the darkness
And welcome back the light.

Stories were created
And songs they did sing,
Of Bialobog and Czarnabog,
The Oak King and The Holly King.

Baking treats and
A candle I do light,
To celebrate Winter Solstice
And Yule's longest night.
