On this second night of Yule we call out in darkness.
As the Sun stops descending in the southern sky
And the Earth turns its northern face away from its rays,
We stand in the silent stillness of the Winter Solstice;
Taking time away from the holiday bustle to contemplate
The miracle of our planet’s life-sustaining tilt
And the majesty of the changing seasons.
Winter Solstice Night, we honor you.
