Whatever you may call it

Whatever you may call it
    sun stands still on its head
before it turns into new orbit
    make of that what you will
call it winter solstice    romans did
    sacrifice or sanctify with observance
kiss under mistletoe or paint town red
    'taint hope or dread affects outcome
why'd we let sun's axis tax us
    summoning luck or gods' boon
hence moonface or sunny demeanour
    in expectation of new year:
may generous health your days attend
    with firm friends and love held dear
