    Default Winter-gift

    The candle burns, and the days turn. Aye, and the year the same. But turn is turning, and that is but the way of all worlds, and what is lost may come again. As Winter-Fest comes - as Kindle.
    And thus it is.
    These words are old and older - ten years of melted wax in the land called Real. But mayhap they stand another waking. Of a morn long past, a Winter-Fest long gone, I was on wing. And a thing I saw...


    I'm told they call me Gifted
    And many Foe I've slain
    And heard of glasses lifted
    To toast my Foolish fame
    But I woke late last waking
    And saw ye wake as well
    To watch the new dawn breaking
    In Fest of Winter's spell
    And out I saw ye walking
    Fresh snow to mark thy path
    And in thine eye I saw them
    The seeds thy Spring would cast
    And in thy cot behind thee
    I heard another wake
    And merry was the gurgle
    That happy babe did make
    Then from thy path of walking
    A moment stepped aside
    And mistletoe ye bore ye
    To she who was inside
    And to me it was wonder
    That snow stayed by thy cot
    For from it sprang a fire
    My breath had never got
    And all that fire was heart-born
    And all that fire was joy
    And WinterFest
    Was all of best
    And thy cot best of all

    I'm told they call me Gifted
    And many years my score
    And Foe I'll rend in Blighted land
    Mayhap a hundred more
    But let me wake Fest morning
    And see thee wake the same
    Then I will call me Gifted
    And worthy of the name.

    May Kindle be with ye when it comes, aye and those near to thee and dear. And for the Land called Real? Geseėnde Kersfees, Blunya na wo, Eid Milad Majid, Frohe Weihnachten, Sheng Dan Kuai Le, Ględelig Jul, Mele Kalikimaka, Selamat Natal, Nollaig Shona Dhuit, Chag Molad Sameach, Il-Milied it-Tajjeb, Nizhonigo Keshmish, Wesołych Świąt, Crăciun Fericit, Nadolig Llawen, oDwI'ma' qoS yItIvqu', Alassė a Hristomerendė - whatever words best fit thy lips, may they pass those lips often, and from thy heart to the heart of another.
