They lit their candles
In the cold
To drive away the darkness
And everywhere the evergreen
The cold, fragrant air illuminated by
The winterfires
Boughs of pine hung on every home
For the powers that walk
The sleeping earth
The people with song and dance
Do light the trees and pray
(and pray)
These short and quiet days of snow.
