Solstice Poems: Susan Cooper’s “The Shortest Day”

I grew up in love with Susan Cooper’s books (The Dark Is Rising sequence!). A few year’s back, I was so pleased to find a poem of hers on these beautiful cards for sale at a Revels show… I sent them out to appreciative friends, but kept one to take out for this time of year. For added fun, you can even hear Ms. Cooper read it for you. Happy (almost) Solstice, and Welcome Yule!

Here’s another version, a little easier to read in the image perhaps. Both are for sale at the Revels site.

  1. This is a wonderful poem! Thank you for sharing it. I’m just about to start reading the series to my 8 year old son, partially timed for this time of year.
