Samhain









From Summer Wheat to Samhain meat
and crimson leaves at Pagan feet
with the third harvest now complete
another turn of the wheel we meet

Come the shroud of summers end
pumpkin lantern gourds impend
we set the season tools to mend
we light balefires to spirits wend

We lay to rest the seed and stock
we cast the circles etched in chalk
We lay the plate where spirits walk
we dance and chant till spirits talk

We gather here at hallowed ground
bearing stones to cairn the mounds
Kneeling near the placards found
we harken to their hallowed sounds

Volvitur In Rota!
