The Short­est Day
By Susan Coop­er

And 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, rev­el­ling.
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 now so do we, here, now,
This year and every year.
Wel­come Yule!
