The days they grow longer, the evenings wane, and outside the winds now grow warmer again. We’ve just had the festival of Early Spring, at which we the hopeful did dance shout and sing, and frolic and wrestle and fall into heaps, and tear through a banquet then go off to sleep. Our numbers weren’t many – attendance was low – we worshipped fair Oestre in spite of the snow, we bathed in the moonlight and sang out in verse, we shook off the cobwebs of our wintry curse. Now off to our regular lifetimes we go, with bright beaming smiles that aren’t just for show, all merry of spirit and buoyed with love, feasting on manna that falls from above.
