Haiku poetry: “Midsummer”

It’s that day again today, when all of Sweden closes down for summer celebrations!

Happy Midsummer!

***~***~***~***

Midsummer

Very beloved
Most important holiday
For men to get drunk

All Swedes gather round
A pole decked out in leaves
Force children to dance

Such old traditions
We must keep them all alive
Despite the dull food

The height of summer
The longest day of the year
Though it mostly rains
