Some information about Summer Solstice

A Litha Prayer for the Earth
author unknown

"Great God, Father of the Earth,
Shine down on this, your strongest day.
Blessed Goddess who gave us Birth,
Bless us who honor your ancient way.
As Summer's light falls to the ground,
lending crops and trees it's power,
the Summer winds blow warm and round,
touching the corn silk and the flowers.
We give you thanks, our Mother Earth,
We praise you, fire of the Sun.
We dance this Solstice day with Mirth,
from dawns' first light 'till the day is done."

and some music for this sacred day

  1. You have no idea how much I wish I was back in Oz celebrating summer solstice rather than in dreary England, but at least we have Yule to celebrate, which is just as nice- means summer's closer...
    Enjoy your feast fit for kings, and
