      Greetings,

      I wrote this poem shortly after Yule, as I was making a Holly King
      doll.

      Oak and Holly King at Yule
      By Nancy Venus


      Oak King Said unto Holly King:
      For I am Young and you are old
      All my stories are not yet told
      Your Throne I claim, and I shall reign
      Until it is darkest night again.


      Holly King said unto Oak King:
      For I am old, and you are young
      All my songs they have been sung.
      Wait until the Child of Light
      Grows to longest day,
      and shortest night
      Then your throne I'll take away,
      and For six months I will stay.

      The battle was both short and fierce
      The Holly King his heart was pierced
      By the Oak kings mighty blade
      Upon the ground his body laid

      But, gentle folk be not dismayed
      For Oak King brings us
      For what we have prayed

      As for the fate of Holly king,
      The Holly King is deep at rest
      Deep inside Arianrhod's breast
      Do not fear
      For someday the wren will joyfully sing,
      Holly King will return with Rest to bring
      For he will reign again in the time past spring.
