It's Solstice - Know the dark

I have news for you (9th C - Irish)
Winter Ice - Dead Man's Pond

I have news for you -
The stag bells
Winter snows
Summer has gone
Wind high and cold
The sun low - short its course
The sea running high
Deep red the bracken - its shape is lost
The wild goose has raised its accustomed cry
Cold has seized the birds' wings
Season of ice -
This is my news...
