The Holly King Say “Goodnight”

As the cold winds blows from the northern sky

All of nature has seemed to die.

The Holly King has ruled for long days

The gift of death all life must pay.

His time is short, his work is done

The time for battle has just begun.

His twin brother, they meet at last

For life has come to the world as in the past.

The Oak King is renew from his long rest

Has come to keep the promise from life from death

They draw their swords of challenge and answer

They circle each other with movements of dancers

The brothers come together, steel bites steel.

The earth shudders of change, The Holly King kneels

The Oak King raises the Thyrsis with pride.

For it’s his time to rule at the goddess’s side

Until they meet again on warms summer night

The circle is ever more and that is right.
