Extract from the Hymn of One email:
Dedication is essential to proving your worth to the Hymn of One. You
must concentrate your energy toward the melodies of change. As we
celebrate the Summer Sun, remember to enjoy this change and to sing the praises of eternal happiness."
Song Of The Summer Solstice - flowersonmyhat
Hey guys! I'm so excited! It's the Summer Solstice!
My grandma and my mom wanted me to write a verse to add to our Hymn in celebration of the sun and summer. I thought you guys might like to hear it, so I made a short video.
Here are the lyrics (please don't make fun, I'm new to this and I was really nervous about singing):
Sunshine on my face
Gleams into my happiness
Like a golden dawn.
Sunshine in my soul
Unfettered, free forever

"A solstice occurs twice a year, whenever Earth's axis tilts the most toward or away from the Sun, causing the Sun to be farthest north or south at noon. The name is derived from Latin sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still), because at the solstice, the Sun stands still in declination, that is, its movement north or south is minimal. The term solstice can also be used in a wider sense as the date (day) that such a passage happens. The solstices, together with the equinoxes, are related to the seasons. In some languages they are considered to start or separate the seasons; in others they are considered to be center points (in English, in the Northern hemisphere, for example, the period around the June solstice is known as midsummer, and Midsummer's Day is 24 June, three or four days after the solstice itself).
