Happy Summer Solstice!


June Hymn”

Here’s a hymn to welcome in the day
Heralding a summer’s early sway
And all the bulbs all coming in, To begin
The thrushes bleating battle with the wrens
Disrupts my reverie again
Pegging clothing on the line
Training jasmine how to vine
Up the arbor to your door, And more
You’re standing on the landing with the war You shouldered all the night before
[Chorus:] And once upon it
The yellow bonnets
Garland all the line
And you were waking
And day was breaking
A panoply of song
And summer comes to Springville Hill
A barony of ivy in the trees
Expanding out it’s empire by degrees
And all the branches burst a’ bloom
Into bloom
 Heaven sent this cardinal, maroon
To decorate our living room
[Chorus:] And once upon it
The yellow bonnets
Garland all the line
And you were waking
And day was breaking
A panoply of song
And summer comes to Springville Hill
And years from now When this old light isn’t ambling anymore Will I bring myself to write “I give my best to Springville Hill”
[Chorus:] And once upon it
The yellow bonnets
Garland all the line
And you were waking
 And day was breaking
A panoply of song
 And summer comes to Springville Hill
