lyrics

Winter Solstice
(L. Powers/ E. Bray)

Eileen, Irish:
Winter solstice is here
Winds of change beckon
Earth’s very breath
Seems to falter

Laura:
Winter’s spell is cast
The solstice is upon us
Dreaming in the void
We wait for love to to call us

And I listen to my heart, listen to the silence
Listen to the solstice call….. Me home

Eileen, Irish:
The veil is thin
Let the wisdom of our ancestors
Fill our souls
With the light of love

Laura:
As the seasons turn,
Spirits are renewed
Darkness takes its leave
A new path is revealed

So I listen to my heart, listen to the silence
Listen to the solstice call….. Me home

Eileen, Irish:
“May the wisdom of the Solstice remain with you”
