To high places To holy wells Hills O mountains we come Hills mountains we come Full first fruits Our Summers wages Harvest in the sun Gather the sun From marshy ground near River Deel Flickers a flame Flickering flames Carried torches through fields we'd walk To fullness on a Plain Fullness of the Plain Three times sunrise Prayers on her knees Hear Cuckoo's call Heed Cuckoo's last call Light aflame our every corner Blessed be all Blessings to Fall

about

Another fire festival has begun. The midsummer festival of St. John's Eve.
I've come across a description of one such night described by an old schoolmaster who lived in West Limerick which carried my initial impetus Irish/Scottish Summer-Harvest celebrations to focus on St. John's Eve or Bonfire Night. "... the fire used to be lit exactly at sunset and had to be watched and tended until long after midnight. Prayers used to be said to gain God's blessing on the crops, then at the peak-point of summer bloom."
