Winter Solstice

Lee Evans

Blue winter sunshine,
Brilliant, clear,
Marriage of heat and light,
Love and Wisdom,
Mine and Yours,
Carols of winterberry.

Leave it all alone:
The axe in the tool shed,
Ornaments in the attic,
The uncensored evergreen.
Worship in the wilderness,
Home where you belong.

Pines branching infinitely,
Bowing low with humility,
Hoary, ancient,
Crystalline, youthful:
Prisms twinkling
Music of fire and snow.
