More Seasonal Goodness

I got a mention in Huffington Post’s Mabon article last year, and I only just found out! ūüėÄ “Especially evocative”, they said! ūüėÄ I like it!

My songwriting prompt this week was the phrase “summertime sky”. ¬†This one’s gonna get people dancing at festivals, I have no doubt. ¬†Can’t wait!

 

Dance¬†the¬†Fairy¬†Ring (Each Season’s Change)

Summertime sky is high at the Solstice
Dragonflies are kings of the air.
Starlight reigns when sunset’s over
Bright as the fireflies glowing there.
They dance the faery ring

Autumn sky is blue for the Harvest.
Smoke and mystery soon rise.
The very air grows thick with spirits
taking the place of the fireflies.

Dance, dance the fairy ring!
Revel in each season’s change!
Will-o-the-wisps are beckoning,
dance the fairy ring!

Winter sky is pale and vivid,
Promises on the whistling wind.
Magic of the cold and quiet
brings our dancing back again.
And we dance the fairy ring

Spring, the sky is full to bursting.
Rainfall bids us all to wake,
just as flowers rise and riot,
blooming fit for the earth to shake!

Dance, dance the fairy ring!
Revel in each season’s change!
Will-o-the-wisps are beckoning,
dance the fairy ring!
Dance, dance the fairy ring!
Revel in each season’s change!
The Wheel of the Year turns round again
as we dance the fairy ring!
