I was hired to perform a private Faerie/Solstice party the other night, and lead a musical ritual at midnight. I wrote a slightly simpler and lighter version of this song to perform, then added a few personal touches for this recording. It’s kind of a lot of different ideas rather than a clear narrative of any kind. Lots of overlapping repeating vocals as most of my “spell songs” go.

I was also very inspired by the film Midsommar, and though it wasn’t intended as literally about that flick, I feel like it would kinda work with it.

Thanks to Tom Cavnar for shooting a picture of me with our ridiculously bountiful plum tree this evening!


Can you fall in love with the night sky
And the longest twilight?
Even though you must wait ayear before you see it again?
Can you call to yourself all the pleasures you’ve dreamed of
Without any pain?

(Growing, growing, flicker, flicker)

(Light these candles for becoming
The whole world is beckoning)

This is the season for shedding your old skin
You want to feel the warmth and let the sunlight in

You see a reflection and you can choose your path
You’ve gathered a flock — where will you lead them —
Through the laughing woods or by the dimpling stream
Or straight to your own own halls?

You burn so bright now
Your heart is fecund ground!
What has she done with her power
Behold: the fruit from her flowers!

It is joy and radiance
The seeds she’s sown
It is strength and coinfidence
The flowers grown!

Behold: the fruit from her flowers!

(Only some of them are toxic)
(The risk is worth it)
