Commentary
One legend has it that Hecuba, Queen of Troy, gave birth to twins on the day of the summer solstice, naming the boy “Helenus” and the girl  “Cassandra”.

Between the earth and sky....


On this the longest day

night is low and sun is high.


Alé, Alé, Alé, Alécas.

 Alé, Alé, Alé, Cassandra.


Between the wax and wane....


On this the shortest night,

the Queen of Darkness suckles twins.


Helé, Helé, Helé, Helénus.

 Alé, Alé, Alé, Cassandra.
