Our friend Dirk Campbell has composed a lovely ’round’ for us to sing at our summer solstice celebration on Firle Beacon on Saturday morning. Below are the lyrics and a sound clip. Happy Solstice!

Summer Round

 A rpt. Summer dawn and fire warm

Earth and hearth and heart

B rpt. Sun shines warm for life to grow

Sun’s bright blessing on the Earth below

Solo   Father of the world

Great heart, great fire

Father of us all

Great mind inspire

Light rising in the eastern skies

Light dawning as the eagle flies

Singing summer songs of wonder
