Original text and translations
1. In the winter's early darkness,
through the days of failing light,
travelers may delay a journey
or may learn to read the night.
2. Turning on a steady axis,
cold and burning, black and bright,
heaven tells a faithful story
of the coming of the Light.
3. As we recognize the patterns,
as we turn a certain way,
even when the path is darkest
we are faced to greet the day.
