Happy Midsummer and Summer Solstice, my friend.
It is a gorgeous time. The sun reaches it's
zenith tonight on this first day of Summer.
It is the longest day and shortest night.
Midsummer is celebrated from June 20th - 23rd.
. You can burn yellow, red and
orange candles. Wear daisies, sunflowers, roses,
honeysuckle, carnations in your hair or on your
clothes. Bake delicious pies and cakes in honor
of our friend, The Sun.
It is also the time of Faeries. When our world
and their world cross paths. And magick in all forms
dances in the air. Perhaps, you will run into the Faerie
Queen herself, Titiana.
This lovely passage is from A Midsummer Night's Dream
by my old friend, William Shakespeare.
Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire,
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moon's sphere;
And I serve the fairy queen,
To dew her orbs upon the green.
The cowslips tall her pensioners be:
In their gold coats spots you see;
Those be rubies, fairy favours,
In those freckles live their savours:
I must go seek some dewdrops here
And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.
Farewell, thou lob of spirits; I'll be gone:
Our queen and all our elves come here anon.
Enjoy these beautiful First Days of Summer.
