Summer Solstice – Midsummer
Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at 12:44 a.m.
One of the four solar holidays; the turning point at which summer reaches its height and the sun shines longest.
“... those summer evenings
which under the leaves of the poplars‑
striped dun and ochre, simmering over
the stashed‑up debris of old seasons -
a swarm of wild bees is making use of.”
