Poem: Hail Midsummer!

Hail Midsummer!

It rains tonight gentle, tender
a mother bathing her child

Norns-blessed youth laughing, splashing
skin refreshed and gleaming

The evening meal long hours past
I rest from day’s labor

Yet Sunna lingers cloud-defiant
blue tints behind the black

Thor rumbles but cannot halt
midsummer’s steady advance

Long, happy days solstice once more
a joy to all good folk

(Mike Hicks)
