Lammas, A Poem

Updated on July 28, 2016

Pagan Poetry is a specialty of mine - I have a website called TheGypsyThread with more of my work.

Summer heat is at its peak

The energy of a waning sun

The blessed union’s first fruits

Abundant and awaiting

Harvesting commences

The one of the three

An eternal thankfulness

The fullness of the moment

True by unrealized,

Twice providing for mankind

Sustenance for the frigid months ahead

And seed for the next rebirth

The Celebration Ceremony

The sun God surrenders his life

Freely and without remorse

So his earthly children may survive

Never really abandoning us,

His spirit consumed in the bread

And stored in the planting grain

For the many, so goes the one

Yet fear not for the dying

Instead think towards the resurrection

Celebrate the first fruits

Give thanks to the land

Give thanks to the Goddess

Summon her strength as your own

Stay the course of all that is noble

Share without reward

Embrace in the plenty
