about

I found this recording of a song I had forgotten about - a song I wrote last autumn while being touched by the deep teachings of the trees as they shed their leaves. For me this song carries an incredible tale. As I was writing it I remember thinking 'I’m such a fraud! I'm writing a song about diving into winter's darkness and I’m about to get on a plane to Hawaii!' Little did I know how deeply intelligent my soul was, and little did I know I would not board that plane and would unexpectedly have the most intensely transformative death and rebirth experience of my life that winter.

When I found this song again I was blown away to hear the words that were unknowingly predicting what was to come. This song feels close to my heart once again as this special time of year comes around... and as I look forward to resting into a snugly winter in Devon, giving thanks for each new morning that I am alive.... having said that I have learned to laugh at my plans! Who knows what will happen this winter!

lyrics

Winter's Song

Don’t be afraid to fall to the ground
Sink into winter, follow ancient autumn’s sound
Don’t be afraid to leave your branches bare
Don’t be afraid of death and all the healing that is waiting there

‘Cause I know that I will live again
Winter’s song must teach me how to die
I know that life will flow again
I must fall so that I learn to rise

I will rise renewed
Another cycle round the sun
I will rise, I choose
To die to be reborn
I will rise renewed
Another cycle round the sun
I will rise, I choose
To die to be reborn

Don’t be afraid to let go of what is old
Surrender to darkness
Ask her what her teachings hold
Don’t be afraid to shed another skin
Drop what does not serve you
Let the transformation begin

‘Cause I know that I will live again
Winter’s song must teach me how to die
I know that life will flow again
I must fall so that I learn to rise

I will rise renewed
Another cycle round the sun
I will rise, I choose
To die to be reborn
I will rise renewed
Another cycle round the sun
I will rise, I choose
To die to be reborn

Reborn reborn
To transform
To be reborn
