Some sense soon the sense of celebration,
Elevating spirit, mood, and song,
And some just wait for it to come along,
Succumbing to the common inspiration.
Others will insist it's the creation,
Not of ancient myth or psychic need
So much as avarice and corporate greed
Grasping any chance for exploitation.
Remember, then, that it is all of these,
Embracing what is there and moving on,
Enjoying fun and laughter, love and grace
Through right and wrong, through beauty, death, and pain.
In ritual one finds an inner ease,
Nor ought one's use of it depend upon
Granting every claim of time and place,
So long as its sweet touch goes with the grain.
