What We Will

(6 January)

x

I don’t have anything

For you, but

There is this:

There is a story

x

It is winter, now;

We have passed Twelfth Night,

The yule log is expiring

In the manor home,

Epiphany will have

Its celebrations;

x

Winter, then, will be

Full upon us

In the north;

x

And it will be, between

Any festivals, such a

Good time for stories

And storytellers

x

Who should be invited

Then blessed on their way

To comfort others in

diverse ways.

x

Should there be no tellers

At hand, then we must

Become them—every group

Has a story,

After all;

And if yours has none to tell,

Then write it

(there will be a text

for now, for later on)

And then tell it:

x

Hear it, everyone!

In the north, it is

Such a good time for this.
