Poem: "The Wheel of the Year"

THE WHEEL OF THE YEAR

PLEASE NOTE: This poem is about the mystical Wheel of the Year, a wheel that speaks of eight seasons, not four. The layout of the poem is:

Verse one - symbols of the first four seasons, in order
Verse two - names of the first four seasons, in order
Verse three - symbols of the second group of four seasons, in order
Verse four - names of the second group of four seasons, in order

The Wheel of the Year contains many celebrations that are important to many people, and this poem is a great meme for remembering the eight seasons in order! :)

====================================

THE WHEEL OF THE YEAR

Colors bold
Let the wheel turn
Winter's cold
And the wheel turns;
Fires bright
Let the wheel turn
Equal night
And the wheel turns;

Samhain, Yule,
Imbolc too:
Cold earth grows to warm.
Ostara's perfume,
Flowers true:
Each thing in its turn.

Lambkins bleat
Let the wheel turn
Berries sweet
And the wheel turns;
Sun holds sway
Let the wheel turn
Equal day
And the wheel turns;

Beltane, Midsummer
Lammas grain:
Warm earth turns to cold
Mabon bringing
Chilling rain:
Changing, as of old.
