Intercalary Days: February 26 to March 1
Raise your voices in exaltation,
The days of Ayyam-i-Ha are here,
The joyful days of celebration,
Charity, hospitality, and cheer.

This is the season of giving,
Through service to humanity,
The days of praise and thanksgiving,
For the blessings of divine unity.

This is the holiday season,
Of preparation for The Fast1,
Love of Baha'u'llah is the reason,
We celebrate before we fast.

Poet's Note:

Footnotes
1  The nineteen day fast begins at sunset on March 1. Healthy Baha'is between the ages of 15 and 70 fast between sunup and sundown.
