So may this season of sweet celebration
Endure for yet another generation,
Alive in food and ritual and song,
Sustained by the desire to pass it on.
Of love and will and long tradition sing,
Needing new knots to extend the string.
Sing the cover songs that touch the heart,
Giving them new salience through your art.
Revel in the riches of the season,
Embracing truths more resonant than reason,
Each a myth of hope revealed anew
That touches something beautiful in you.
If you resolve not to let it die,
Nor be reduced to something one might buy,
Giving it the imprint of your grace,
So will the next brigade this time embrace.
