Oh RIVER, re-wild my soul
Help me let go of control
Show my heart how to flow with ease again

Blessings of Beltane

(Cernunnos Rising)

First sunlight dancing upon a stream,
A web with pearls of dew,
Blessings of colour from flower and thorn,
Above me only blue.

First birdsong from the meadow land,
An inspirational sound,
Carried along by the morning breeze,
Waking all around.

Bringer of summer Dancer of green
Keeper of cauldron Diviner of dream
Maiden of flowers Lifter of veils
Friend of my heart Teller of tales

Winter will teach the beauty of change,
I smile now that summer is here,
She’s back again, with a fragrant embrace,
Brought on the wheel of the year.

So light up the fires of Beltane,
The promise of May-time once more,
And witness the dance of the maiden,
Just as the year before.

Bringer of summer Dancer of green
Keeper of cauldron Diviner of dream
Maiden of flowers Lifter of veils
Friend of my heart Teller of tales

Winter’s Cloak

Winter’s Cloak by Joyce Rupp

This year I do not want
the dark to leave me.
I need its wrap
of silent stillness,
its cloak
of long lasting embrace.
Too much light
has pulled me away
from the chamber
of gestation.

Let the dawns
come late,
let the sunsets
arrive early,
let the evenings
extend themselves
while I lean into
the abyss of my being.

Let me lie in the cave
of my soul,
for too much light
blinds me,
steals the source
of revelation.

Let me seek solace
in the empty places
of winter’s passage,
those vast dark nights
that never fail to shelter me.

NOTE

Rupp is a writer as well as Co-Director of the Institute of Compassionate Presence.

Wassail Song

Originally at https://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/wassail_song-1.htm

Alternate Titles: “Here We Come A Wassailing,” “Here We Come A-Caroling,” and “Here We Go A-Caroling.”

Words: English Traditional, 17th century

Music: Traditional English Wassail Song, 17th century

Source: Henry Ramsden Bramley and John Stainer, Christmas Carols New and Old, Second Series (London: Novello, Ewer & Co., 1871), Carol #37

1. Here we come a wassailing
Among the leaves so green,
Here we come a wandering
So fair to be seen.

Chorus
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail too,
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year.
And God send you a happy New Year.

2. Our wassail cup is made
Of the rosemary tree,
And so is your beer
Of the best barley. Chorus

3. We are not daily beggars
That beg from door to door,
But we are neighbours’ children
Whom you have seen before. Chorus

4. Good Master and good Mistress,
As you sit by the fire,
Pray think of us poor children
Are wandering in the mire. Chorus

5. We have a little purse
Made of ratching leather skin;1
We want some of your small change2
To line it well within. Chorus

6. Call up the Butler of this house,
Put on his golden ring;
Let him bring us a glass of beer,
And the better we shall sing. Chorus

7. Bring us out a table,
And spread it with a cloth;
Bring us out a mouldy cheese,
And some of your Christmas loaf. Chorus

8. God bless the Master of this house,
Likewise the Mistress too;
And all the little children
That round the table go. Chorus

1. Bramley and Stainer add a footnote explaining that ratching is leather that will stretch. Shaw and Dearmer, in The English Carol Book, First Series, substitute the word stretching, as does Rickert

2. Joshua Sylvester has “We want a little of your money.”

Halloween

Halloween ©George Nicholas

Bring the souls of days gone by
When glowing embers fade and die
In song and tales long of long ago
The bards and minstrels only know

Wise ol’ women, witches too
Share knowledge of the past with you
And dance around the Samhain fires
The elder’s wisdom, they desire

And they all know that youth decays
And beauty never ever stays
Dance the dance this Halloween
Darker days will soon be seen

Tell the tale of long-lost lands
Buried ‘neath the shifting sands
Where footprints of the hunters lay
In stone forever they will stay

And on this night the dead can dance
And be with us once more
Samhain fires burning bright
For those who’ve gone before

And on this night the dead can sing
Songs of yesteryear for on this night we celebrate
The old ones being here

(Repeat entire song twice)
