Midsummer bonfire, on the hill,
Set the watch and carry the torch,
Protect the village on this night.
Jump the fire with nary a scorch!
Make yourself an amulet
From the ashes of the fire,
Knead into clay for a talisman,
Let the remnants earn their hire.
Wait upon the sun this night,
You will see the little Fey
If you sit in a circle of stone
To keep the mischievous ones at bay!
Walk the fire thrice about,
Tell a pebble your desire,
And on the final trip around,
Toss the stone into the fire.
Celebrate both work and leisure,
Time for children and for play,
Oak King wanes and Holly waxes,
Nights grow long and short the day.
On Midsummer night, the forest elves
And all the little people appear,
Put the ivy on your door,
Bless the pets, and have no fear.
Ring the cauldron with some flowers,
Wisteria oil, Frankincense burn,
Emerald and Jade are stones to have,
Herbs are larkspur, lavender, fern.
Midsummer is here, we celebrate
The midpoint between Spring and Fall,
Hail the Holly King who conquers,
Bless the Goddess, one and all!
