Before the Moon Rises on Lughnasa

There is not enough time to say
What we have to say, need to say

There is not enough time to hold
A kiss, hands held firm, caressed

There’s not enough time to confirm
our love, to cherish our life together

To cherish one another
For Lughnasa is not far away.

  • Lughnasadh or Lughnasa is a Gaelic festival marking the beginning of the harvest season. Historically, it was widely observed throughout Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man. Traditionally it is held on 1 August, or about halfway between the summer solstice and autumn equinox.
