Summer Benediction

June 22, 2019



 

II Summer

 

When young-leafed June is summoned by the sun,

And new-mown grass breathes fragrance through the air,

When work is over, holidays begun,

May peace and pleasure in themselves be prayer.

And in your leisure may you hear the one

Who is your blessing and by whom you’re blest

Still calling you: Come unto me and rest.

 

 



Summer Benediction is one of four seasonal benedictions written and narrated by Malcolm Guite specially commissioned for The Cultivating Project. These benedications are included in Malcolm’s collection of poetry titled “After Prayer“, released by Canterbury Press, October 2019. The featured image is titled “Spring of Living Water “- (c) Lancia E. Smith and used with permission for The Cultivating Project.
