Winter Solstice 2011

I have news for you
The stag bells, winter snows, summer has gone
Wind high and cold, the sun low, short its course
The sea running high
Deep red the bracken; its shape is lost
The wild goose has raised its accustomed cry,
Cold has seized the birds' wings
Season of ice, this is my news

-9th century Irish
