Passing the solstice threshold
Sumer is icumen in llude sing cucu
Barley bright wheat heat
Swells the corn sickle thick
Stalk stack stook rick
Corn goddess lingers on
Twixt download and upload
Golding the harvest home
Nimble fingers twist and bind
The final sheaf in pagan guise
Scythes flashed away and
Sickles hidden until holly
Time and mistletoe crop
Crows glean stubble clean
Stripping lynchets of their
Wonted deem
