After the Solstice waning sun comes back again,
but it takes a long time for that day when,
the forest and fields are alive with life,
we face several moons of cold, dark strife.
Sacrifices have been placed on the sun's altar,
Winter is long and winter is bitter and harsh.
We have prayed to our sun to please come back,
So now we must bundle up and watch for a sign,
We have given you the best of our harvest and our young.
