THE SOLSTICE TREE SONG

SOLSTICE GREETINGS 2018 CE

Dearest Friends & Followers,

fellow Pagans, Poets & Anarchists,

be you simmering in the summer heat of the Southern hemisphere’s longest day,

or shivering through the wintered North’s

longest night,

The Reverend sends you his Solstice greetings, wishes you well for the oncoming year’s trials & tribulations

and bids you gather round the sacred Solstice Tree of Fertility

in good fellowship to sing it’s praises

while quaffing the inebriant of your choice.

The Solstice Tree

(traditional Pagan tune, re-arranged by the

Rev Hellfire)

*

Solstice Tree, fair Solstice Tree!

Green Symbol of Fertility!

A Home for Birds, A Home for Bees,

Thy spreading branches shelter me.

You stand for all the other Trees

That make the very air we breathe.

*

O Solstice Tree, fair Solstice Tree,

Green Symbol of Fertility!

From trees come all the wood we use,

And of course the paper too,

The Flowers, Seeds,Nuts and the Fruit,

The Trees provide us with all this food.

*

For all these Gifts, we thank the Trees,

Their mighty branches, their shining leaves,

O Solstice Tree, Fair Solstice Tree,

Great Symbol of Fertility!

*
