I will celebrate these holy days with joy

delighted that what is commemorated

took place in history as also in my life


“But theyre of pagan origin,” some say,

“have been renamed from a pagan start

simply to draw the masses into the fold”

pretending thus their worth reduced


I who celebrate have also pagan origin

have been reclaimed from my pagan start

I have been reborn, am pagan no more

should their pretense my own worth reduce


Yes, I will celebrate my holy days with joy

exuberant that I who once was dead

by these days deeds will inherit Life!
