The Old Year Flickers Down and Dies

Jana the Mad
December, A.S. XXXVII (2002)

To a 14th century anon. tune – missing two verses due to a missing bard book

The old year flickers down and dies
New king, new queen
Well may they reign here
In our lives

All dies in winter but these three:
Love of the Kingdom, evergreen
Holly, and the beauty of our Queen
In our eyes


Justice has her sword in hand
Even tempered to command
May her reach last long like the sand
And the skies
