8 Crazy Nights
Freedom and all untimed song-
just melody and unrhymed words.
Following each intoned chorus
and dancing with our unboned swords.
When found the gifts all freely giv'n
taking them is the first step to heav'n.
There is no ascetic debauchery
or drunken nights, raw entropy,
but true ascetic virtue is
to love gifts as gifts and God as He.
And to revel in thankful mysteries.
It is the Octave of Christmas and the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God!
Merry general greatness of Salvation!
