Summer Solstice by May Leng

Summer solstice

The longest day, the brightest song

I’ve come here through the longest night

Cold and frost have burnt me 

Many storms have dried my soul 

I have walked seven years 

My shoes of iron are nigh worn out 

I have swum seven rivers 

The currents pulling me down 

Seven flowers wreathe my brow 

Keep me safe from ghosts and ghouls

There were trees in the deserts

Not many but just enough 

I dance from night to day 

As the dawn breaks 

My breakdown becomes a breakthrough 

To the summer solstice

The longest day, the brightest song.
