a Solstice Love Song



"The Love Song" by Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones can be heard on a Solstice night, when the sun sleeps early and twilight spills out angels clothed in fiery red dreams.

"Angels clothed in fiery red dreams" is evocative for me. Beautiful language. Beautiful images. Ahhhhhhhh.

ooooo princess,

this is so beautiful. how did you know that winter solstice is my solstice? I once met two albino stags on a solstice eve, as twilight began to spill through leafless trees and needled pines. are they my gryphons? my talismans? my angels? oh princess, if only i could remember what they said .... they oft visit me in my dreams ....

crystalline skies, pinpoint starlight, and angels ... winter's solstice is my dream night, the night that lets me fly ...

sigh...you now have me wandering away with my head full of solstice eves, white deer and red fiery dreams taking flight ...

lovely, lovely, lovely

Winter solstice... i like it
Because of my true Christian name: Lucie, which means light. In Sweden, it is very important because it is so dark, the night is so long and they need hope so St Lucie is a very important fest on the 13th of December...
Last year, I made a post. I don’t believe I’ll do it again that year.
