Litha Summer Solstice

You are currently viewing Litha Summer Solstice

Says ancient lore that the longest day
when Sunny’s bright shows its apogee
when squabs leaving out their warming nest
when the air is warm and the soil is green,
is the time when light starts its own retreat
allowing the throne to the darkness.

People celebrate around bonfires
and below the leaves doing the same the fairies.
Everyone is enjoying the happiest day
Nature now is turning the cycle wheel.
Although light will dim from now ahead,
ones that won’t decrease will be Litha bless.
