The Celebration

shadows fall across the land
as we gather hand in hand

bonfires light our course
all for love, no remorse

in a circle, round about
cast off our worldly doubt

lovers cuddle by the fire
dancers dance to inspire

once a year we gather here
usher in a festive year

come, dear Cupid, from above
welcome this our age of love
