All Beliefs are Welcome Here!

So the shortest day came, and the year died,

And everywhere down the centuries of the snow-white world

Came people singing, dancing,

To drive the dark away.

 

They lighted candles in the winter trees;

They hung their homes with evergreen;

They burned beseeching fires all night long

To keep the year alive,

And when the new year's sunshine blazed awake

They shouted, reveling.

 

Through all the frosty ages you can hear them

Echoing behind us

Listen!!

 

All the long echoes sing the same delight,

This shortest day,

As promise wakens in the sleeping land:

They carol, feast, give thanks,

And dearly love their friends,

 

And hope for peace.

 

And so do we, here, now,

This year and every year.

 

Welcome Yule!

 

Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!

Some of the music you'll hear on this weeks show include Loreeena McKennitt: "Snow"; Mother Tongue: "The Wintry Queen"; Maddy Prior: "Red and Green"; Jethro Tull: "Ring Out, Solstice Bells"; Billy May: "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Mambo" and more.

DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?

Maybe you've composed a new poem and would like to hear it on the radio. If you want to submit audio to The Spiral Dance, send me an email. There are basically no rules - just no harsh language, no commercial self-promotion and no Christian-bashing. Please let me know what you think about the show. I'm always open to suggestions; email spiraldance1@ excite.com or radiohawthorne@yahoo.com
