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 would come undone.
