Midsummer Prayer to the Sun

Stand still just a moment in the sky, Sun.
Tarry just a moment in the heavens, King.
Wait just a while on the horizon, Lord.
Stay awhile in balance with dark before the tide turns toward it,
and receive my offering.
Know this:
A lord without a throne is still a lord.
A king without a crown is yet a king.
And a sun, even in the time of the year when He is absent from the sky more than He is in it, is ever a Sun,
and deserves my honor.
Welcome and Dear Sun, Lord and King, know this:
through the dark half of the year you will never want for worship.
I shall give you deserved gifts.
I shall praise your magnificence.
And I shall pour out heart, words, and deeds in continuing worship.
