Hail and welcome! Father Sun,
as you journey cross the western sky.
In this the time of balance between
day and night, light and dark.
You, are still the bringer of high summers heat.
But now is the time of harvest home,
and we revel in the bounty that summers warmth
has brought, in return for our reverence for the land.
But the days will soon grow shorter, and winters
grip will be felt. as the winds icy blast
strips the coat of summer from the trees,
and turns our mothers body to iron.
We must bid you fond farewell father Sun
as you continue your journey into the west
and the days grow shorter, and shorter and
your death is assured.
But as the days grow shorter there
are signs like holy words written in the
earth and sky, and all life, that remind us
that this death will lead to rebirth and
we will bid you welcome once more.
