Summer Solstice

This was when the whole world measured time
This is when the light would turn around
This is where the past would come undone
and the spinning earth will mark a new beginning

Let's go back in time, to when it all began
To the breaking of new dawns
Where moments bright with fire, would light the chanting song

Where pagans worshipped sun, and danced among the trees
Wore strange masks of covered straw, and blessed cold ash with awe

Wreaths hung upon the door against all spirit's, dire 
and when the winter's grasp let go, the sun reversed the pyre

This was when the whole world measured time
This is when the light would turn around
So that spring arrives, and seeds will sprout and grow

Oh, radiant sun, stretch the day, shorten night
Return earth's darkness into light
This is where the light will turn around
And this was where the past has comes undone
