Litha - A Mid Summer poem. Check it out, this is a cool site.


Litha ( Mid Summer )

All Hail the Glory
Of Bright Mid summers Day
We bid you welcome to our stead
... We enjoin you to come and stay
Come take a sup from Cerridwin's Caldron
Come Dance tonight with the Fae,

All Hail to our Father Lugh
... Whose merry child awaits him
All Hail to the Great Mother Frigga
Our White Lady of Summers whim
All Hail Balder the blessed child
Of light both bright and dim
Blessings be on this longest day
To all who come within



Hail the South where the suns fire burns
This day is thine, your protection we yearn

Hail the West of cool waters delight
Summer rainfalls blessings, on us tonight

Hail the North with growing flowers fair
May the Fae guard us round on the evening air

Hail the East with sweet scented embrace
Petals dance round our feet in protection and grace

In the fields we know best, we now stand upon
While the door stands open wide for divination's song
Moon White blossoms of the lady's Elder
Are on the Altar fair
Sun Yellow are the Wort blooms,
Gathered for our hair

Time to open our minds to the gentle Power there
Time to speak our truths by the sunlight's glare
The battle of the Warrior rages, always within oneself
Proper it is ,the Warriors way,
Who hides not their power on a dusty shelf
Tucked away from the moonlight fair
Time to be true to the Self

Like the Phoenix from the ashes
We are renewed again to Life
Wild the bonfires burn on this Night of Delight
Leap High over the Fires and Drive the cattle swiftly
Call for the Sunwheels power and grace
To feed the world of the light

Dance we now in the firelight
On This the Night of the Fae
Dance on in the Moonlights fancy
Before we go on our way

With the Dance comes Freedom
For bringing forth new life we call
First fruits on the bough, sweet is it now
The herbs so green deck the Hall

Time to make Charms for the living
Time to make Charms for the marriage bed
Time for Rituals of Protection
Over all our lands and farmsteads
Hail Mighty Mother soon come to your borning bed
Bring to us the Power when we stand in thy stead

Hail the Innocence of the Children
This Night of Mid summers day
Summon we now the Powers of Light
That they grow upright and strong we pray

Stir Now the Caldron of Cerridwin
Let the Wisdom of all things flow
Prepare now for thy own prosperity
Let the Glad tidings show
By Moonlights Sparkle or Sunlight's Grace
With the Power endow this place

Sunlight and Moonlight are one in the same
Call on them now, in the Mother and Fathers name
Bright the white moonlight of our Mothers grace
Warm the Yellow Sunlight on our fields,
Sweet is Our Fathers face

Hail the South where the suns fire burns
This day is thine, your protection we earned

Hail the West of cool waters delight
Summer rainfalls blessings, did fall on us tonight

Hail the North with growing flowers fair
Did the Fae guard us round on the evening air

Hail the East with sweet scented embrace
Petals danced round our feet in protection and grace
