Litha, a poem

Updated on June 15, 2016

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

Rejoice in the light

Measure the day by its length

Place a hand on the warmth

Fulfillment, celebration, climax

The Goddess, her belly grows

A new life dwells inside

Illuminative powers peak

The zenith point achieved

Akin to a stoppage and stillness

Hilltop bonfires

And spaces in between

Polarity and balance

Fire and Water

The Oak King yields

His greenwood throne open

For the ascendency of the Holly King

Waning times beckon passions

In every household

Two converge to be one

A commitment for eternity

Growth in the garden

Prosperity in the master chamber

Excesses from a generous mother

Abundance holds direction

Recognize the faeries

Honor those with child

Take pleasure in giving

    Thanks - occasionally I take time out from political debate to remember where I come from and what in life is truly important.
