Solstício do Inverno - Midwinter day

"Stone glade in dark wood
pine branch in watchers hand
smoke of iron calls forth the forest guardian
hear the flight of winter geese
the running of the woodland host!
Hera the clash of brave antlers
in the name of the Lord fo Animals!
Hear the breathing of the God, rampant and fertile,
hear the footfalls af the antlered one.
hear Kernunnos enter stone glade in dark wood!"

from The Lost Books of Merlin

 O Solstício do Inverno celebra a supremacia da Luz sobre a Escuridão, na grande roda do eterno retorno.
 O Solstício relembra-nos que. por mais longa que noite possa ser, chegará sempre a madrugada,  
 prenunciadora de um novo dia, da vida que recomeça...

 "Rise, dear Lord of sunlight, rise.
 Return to us, and return us to the light.
 On winter days you live within us
 like a secret blaze.
 Rise now again, Lord Mithras,
 rise up victorious."

 from the Mithraist Rituals

 Neste Solstício relembremos  "The Book of Secrets", na mágica voz de Loreena McKennitt:

When the dark wood fell before me
And all the paths were overgrown
When the priests of pride say there is no other way
I tilled the sorrows of stone

I did not believe because I could not see
Though you came to me in the night
When the dawn seemed forever lost
You showed me your love in the light of the stars

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me

Then the mountain rose before me
By the deep well of desire
From the fountain of forgiveness
Beyond the ice and the fire


Though we share this humble path, alone
How fragile is the heart
Oh give these clay feet wings to fly
To touch the face of the stars

Breathe life into this feeble heart
Lift this mortal veil of fear
Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears
We'll rise above these earthly cares


Please remember me
Please remember me, ...
