In the DT:
Wild Mountain Thyme
It was pleasant and delightful
It's a rosebud in June

Probably not in the DT:
Spirit Sweet of Summertime

We're giving a summer solstice concert this weekend. We are also doing
Summertime and the living is easy
Fever
Under the Boardwalk
The Water is Wide

and many more obscure songs about summer, love, the moon...
love this time of year!

I always think of Stanton Drew as a mid summer song.

This is what I call my Solstice Song .   The usual problem though - I only get to sing it once a year!

P.S. For antiopdeans there is a Midwinter Song there just to keep the balance. (Sorry - would have edited the previous post if editing was an option)

Playing your midsummer song now Steve, charming!

Have a fine Midsummer all! I think the exact time was somewhere around 5am - too early for me :)

It may seem wishful thinking,
And I realise that relatively modern songs are only slowly making their way into folk clubs, so:

"Here comes the sun"

Or, start your own!

In view of recent UK weather ...

In the British summer,
Frosty wind made moan.
Reservoirs o'erflowing
Crops are still ungrown.
Snow has fallen, Snow on snow,
Rain, then hail, then snow.
I remember Summer,
Fifteen years ago.


Apologies to Christina Rosetti
