The children feel the mood as the days for dancing dawn
The costumes in all bright colours awaiting to be worn
There’ll be singing, music and dancing galore across the village green
And celebrations of every kind in all the towns are seen.
For it will be Mid-Summer, and on Midsummer’s Day
The mood is lifted skywards as everyone wants to play.
The music will be a symphony as light as light can be
And the Dance of Dreams begins to the Swedish Rhapsody.
