Some would sing to celebrate the season,
Elevating feeling into beauty.
A graceful melody requires no reason;
Still, one often finds one's muse in duty.
Of year-end holidays then sing, for they
Need music, art, and myth to weave their spell.
Sing, and add your pleasure to the day,
Grateful for the joy you render well!
Revel in the gift you have been given,
Even as you give what gifts you can,
Embracing the delight for which you've striven,
Tunesmith in a raucous caravan.
In love find what you need to play your part,
Not least, the secret sharer of your art,
Granting you, you do not know from where,
Songs to fill the cold, crisp winter air.
