Let Us Go Down

Let us go down

Lay down in song and prayer

Into winter’s calming, quieting rest.

Let us go down to rest

Ease our souls, our minds, our hearts

While celestial orbs journey back

Toward spring’s promised return to

Revive us,

Awaken us, renew us,

Repurpose us, rededicate us to

Ourselves, each other, our families, 

Our communities, our worlds.

Let us go down

Lay down in song and prayer

As we 

Light candles and burn purple mountain sage

For those long gone and

Those new souls just crossing over

Let us go down

Lay down in song and prayer 

For their welcome and 

For our eventual return.

In Joy,

A
