Midsummer Song

Midsummer Song

by Amanda Artemisia Forrester

.

Helios burns at His zenith

For the fiery Sun rules this day

The brother of Selene halts His chariot in the sky

To watch the mortals celebrating below

.

Rejoice!

Build the bonfire high

And dance barefoot under the sky!
Feast and be merry!

For tomorrow the nights will be longer

And the slow decline into winter will begin

.

So rejoice in the gifts of the sun

Ripened fruits and first grains

Helios’ heated rays caressing your skin

Flowers in bloom and greenest grass

.

Hail Helios!

Who reigns supreme today!
Hail Helios!

Sol Invictus, the Invincible Sun!
Hail Helios!
Fiery orb of Apollo

Hail Helios!

I raise my voice in praise to Helios

He wans tomorrow,

But

Today

HE RULES.
