A poem for the winter solstice

It is a night of turning points
Helios reverses his retreat
To ride further to the sky
And Hades returns Persephone
To bring the summer dry

It is a night of turning points
Think what you would like to change
Would you be bolder and braver
Revel less or more in all things strange
Choose who to be, and be your own saviour

Tonight's the night of turning points
Use it! From the dawn behave as one
Who embodies that you would like to be
And keep trying to be that person
Until that person is you, naturally

And may your sun rise ever higher
May your days run ever longer
May you become each day warmer
And your light will shine each day stronger
And be your best, and happy.
