Litha – Summer Solstice ©
The summer days at last begin
We feel the sun’s warmth within.
Although the daylight now grows less
With summer beauty, we are blessed.
The earth is awake in all her glory
Full trees and flowers tell her story.
But dwindling days of summer light
Remind us all, when birds take flight,
To heed the message they do send
Prepare for harvest at summers end.
Enjoy the season when soft breezes hum,
For fall and winter will surely come.
The leaves will fall, as we do know,
And earth will sleep beneath the snow.
