Solstice

The darkest evening of the year
And yet we have found sunlight here,
Carried laughing through the deepwoods
Hand to hand are beams of cheer.

In puffy coats with fluffy hoods,
Disturbing squirrels’ neighbourhoods,
We’ll reach at last a winding cave
And lift our songs to light the woods.

‘The darkest evening of the year’ is a line taken from the poem ‘Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening ‘ by Robert Frost. This poem also uses the partial structure of the same.
