Lingering In Happiness An Inspiring Poem


As today is the longest day of the year, the day where the sun is in the sky for the most time and celebrated as Litha the Summer Solstice, I thought an inspiring poem was in order.

Before we Linger in Happiness, I would like to share a prayer for the Summer Solstice.

“Wishing all beings a warm abundance and loving life that our glorious sun gifts us with each day…
So much gratitude for the sun that always rises and the Earth that keeps on spinning…Namaste”.


Lingering in Happiness by Mary Oliver

From Why I Wake Early

After rain after many days without rain,
it stays cool, private and cleansed, under the trees,
and the dampness there, married now to gravity,
falls branch to branch, leaf to leaf, down to the ground
where it will disappear–but not, of course, vanish
except to our eyes. The roots of the oaks will have their share,
and the white threads of the grasses, and the cushion of moss;
a few drops, round as pearls, will enter the mole’s tunnel;
and soon so many small stones, buried for a thousand years,
will feel themselves being touched.
