Long Winter Shadows

With carols sung, the trees been taken down We’ve passed a dram and the bells no longer sound Snowdrops rise with promise of the spring There’s talk and wonder At what the year might bring The blackbird starts to thicken up her nest While the early lamb, he takes a snowy step But the north wind’s grip it tightens with his chill And holds the buds closed against their will

So we’ll stoke the fire and light the lamp Turn our backs in from the damp Settle down beneath the starry sky Endure the winter passing by

-Lyrics by Emily Smith "Winter Song"
