Each holds sway and hand of might
upon the year’s Great Wheel.
In each domain one shall be King
as wax and wane of Light
move within nature’s cyclic plan.

The Oak holds fast
to growing light
And Holly brings shadow near.
The time between held
in equinox Gate and season’s turn
tips finely calibrated scales.

Solstice Kings, though brothers, they
in battle determine solar fate.
The Light holds fast
The Oak marks time
flanked by strength
and sundial’s grace.

The Holly answers with response
a dance of calculated pace.
At sunset’s call, he strikes his final blow
as Oak in silent acquiescence bows
and bends to Summer Light’s repose.

 
His brother- triumphant Holly King
upon rooster’s call
shall next arise.
The waning of the year begins
with Oak King’s necessary demise.

For what lay sleeping within
the growing splendor of Holly’s
fertile embrace 
is the promise
of Light’s return
at the peak of Winter’s darkened and snowy face.

And, once again the two shall meet
Oak strengthened by slumber’s rest.
The end of darkness near;
the Holly King, his energy spent
shall relinquish crown as
Oak reigns renewed.
