Pagan Poems

Poetry for the Winter Solstice

One thing I love about Facebook memories is that it shows me the poems I forgot I wrote. Here are two that came up today 21st December 2018. They were written for the Pagan festival of Yuletide/Winter Solstice.

Often, I do not give titles to my poems when they are first conceived so the titles are new. You can read more of my poetry here.

Winter Aspects (written 21st December 2013)

Yuletide Blessings

We praise Goddess

The light comes more

The darkness less.


Come longer days

And shorter nights

As solstice comes

We welcome light.


Winter aspects

Of the Gods

Woodland spirits honour

Come together

And light a fire

For Goddess Lucina.



Yuletide Blessings (written 21st December 2014)

Yuletide Blessings

To my friends

The longest night is here

The nights grow short

The days grow long

As we wait for summer to appear.


So I greet you all

With tidings glad, sincere

And on that note

May I wish

A Blessed Litha to the Southern Hemisphere.
