As the sun rises sooner each day
And the fresh buds begin to make their way.
When spring can be felt to glimmer on the horizon
And the world around us begins to enliven.
We take the time to acknowledge the coming light
To bid farewell to the darker night.
And with candles lit and intentions set
We cast our purpose for the year to come yet.
