Summer Solstice

Goodbye to thee, lively oak
Strongest tree, king of the wood
Go rest again in your leafy bower
Until the Dog Star rises over ancient seas

Welcome to thee, warrior holly
The waning year awaits thee
Pierce us with thy dark green tips
Spears of the Underworld

Holly and oak joined in battle
Life and death entwined
All things circle around and around
Never ending – the dance goes on.
