Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter,
Long ago.”

“The Lord of Misrule – December 17th.  This is the first day of the Roman festival Saturnalia.  It was a period of great feasting and festivity, with a lot of drinking and eating.  Slaves would become masters for the festival, and everything was turned upside down. This part of the Roman festival survived into the 17th Century.”

In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.

Than we were in September,’
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.”

Light yourself a candle bright.
I’ll you, if you will me invite
To dance within that gentle light.”
