It is Summer Solstice (Midsummer’s day) on Sunday 21st June and this is my Summer Solstice poem.
There is a micropoem which I have adapted from this original poem which you can find on Jacqueline C Nash Micropoetry.
This bright Summer Solstice day
brings us abundant light,
it is the longest day of the year
and takes us into the shortest night.
When the mid-day sun is at it’s highest
it appears to stand still to our eyes,
for the wheel stops and then starts again,
as the sun journeys back to the southern skies.
At this time we celebrate growth and life,
with abundance and plenty galore,
but the days will become slowly shorter,
now the sun declines towards Winter once more.
