Summer Solstice

One of my missions today is to get some red & yellow flowers for Solstice. Yep, today is Midsummer. It would be cool to be at Stonehenge itself. But, seems as I don't really buy into the whole group mind think anyway I'll just mindfully display some posies, drink some wheat beer--talk to my kids about the tilt of the earth--maybe walk down to the river--hug a tree. Maybe a "bonfire" in the patio fireplace tonight because once I feed Izzy some fairy lore she is gonna want to stay up late.

The king doth keep his revels here to-night:
Take heed the queen come not within his sight;
For Oberon is passing fell and wrath,
Because that she as her attendant hath
A lovely boy, stolen from an Indian king;
She never had so sweet a changeling;
And jealous Oberon would have the child
Knight of his train, to trace the forests wild;
But she perforce withholds the loved boy,
Crowns him with flowers and makes him all her joy:
And now they never meet in grove or green,
By fountain clear, or spangled starlight sheen,
But, they do square, that all their elves for fear
Creep into acorn-cups and hide them there.
