Summer Solstice

This was when the whole world measured time

This is when the light would turn around

 

This is where the past would come undone

and the spinning earth will mark a new beginning

Let’s go back in time, to when it all began

 

To the breaking of new dawns

Where moments bright with fire, would light the chanting song

Where pagans worshipped sun, and danced among the trees Wore strange

masks of covered straw, and blessed cold ash with awe Wreaths hung upon

the door against all spirit’s, dire

and when the winter’s grasp let go, the sun reversed the pyre

This was when the whole world measured time

This is when the light would turn around So that spring arrives, and seeds

will sprout and grow

Oh, radiant sun, stretch the day, shorten night

Return earth’s darkness into light

This is where the light will turn around

And this was where the past has comes undone
