Blue Boat Home

“Blue Boat Home” ©2002 by Peter Mayer

Though below me, I feel no motion
Standing on these mountains and plains
Far away from the rolling ocean
Still my dry land heart can say
I’ve been sailing all my life now
Never harbor or port have I known
The wide universe is the ocean I travel
And the earth is my blue boat home

Sun, my sail and moon, my rudder
As I ply the starry sea
Leaning over the edge in wonder
Casting questions into the deep
Drifting here with my ship’s companions
All we kindred pilgrim souls
Making our way by the lights of the heavens
In our beautiful blue boat home

I give thanks to the waves upholding me
Hail the great winds urging me on
Greet the infinite sea before me
Sing the sky my sailor’s song
I was born upon the fathoms
Never harbor or port have I known
The wide universe is the ocean I travel
And the earth is my blue boat home

Firebird’s Child

Song: FIrebird’s Child

Artist: S. J. Tucker

Album: Blessings

I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird’s child! (I am the firebird’s child!)
I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
And like the flame, I am wild wild wild wild WILD!
I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird’s child! (I am the firebird’s child!)
I am the firebird, the boldest song you’ve ever heard

Join in the dance, and make it wild, wild, wild!
Join in the dance and make it wild!
To see a maiden dance around a fire is not so strange
but fire dances round the limbs of this uncommon maid!
Be brave enough to burn and you’ll be brave enough to fly!
Join your sister Solace as she lights the morning sky!

I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird’s child! (I am the firebird’s child!)
I am the firebird, the boldest song you’ve ever heard
Join in the dance, and make it wild, wild, wild wild Wild
I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird’s child! (I am the firebird’s child!)
I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
And like the flame, I am wild wild wild wild WILD!

Wonders of the water air and earth are all the same
you’ll never know a wonder like the wonders of the flame!
Freely fly as what you are and never walk in shame!
You must not fear to blister if you’d live a life in flame!
I am girl and firebird and solace is my name!

I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird’s child! (I am the firebird’s child!)
I am the firebird, the boldest song you’ve ever heard
Join in the dance, and make it wild, wild, wild!
Join in the dance and make it wild!

If you’re brave enough to dance then you are brave enough to fly!
Forget what’s right and proper! You won’t know until you try!
If you’re brave enough to fly, then you are brave enough to burn!
Take my hand and join me in the Carnival of Dawn!

I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird’s child! (I am the firebird’s child!)
I am the firebird, the boldest song you’ve ever heard
Join in the dance, and make it wild, wild, wild!
Join in the dance and make it wild!

Sister will you follow me?
Sister will you follow me?
Sister will you dance with me?
Sister sorrow walk with me!
Sister will you follow me? Sister will you dance with me?
Sister sorrow walk with me! Sister will you follow me?
Sister will you burn with me? Sister will you follow me?
Sister sorrow dance with me!
Like a flame you must be wild/I am a firebird!
Like a flame you must be wild/I am a firebird!
Like a flame you must be wild/I am a firebird!
Like a flame you must be wild

I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird’s child! (I am the firebird’s child!)
I am the firebird, the boldest song you’ve ever heard
Join in the dance, and make it wild, wild, wild!
I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird’s child! (I am the firebird’s child!)
I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird and Solace is my name

Call to Spirit – Invocation Song

(by Anodea Judith and Selene Vega)

Notes: This particular arrangement was done for “call and response” style in ritual

Spirits of the air, bring your blessings fair
Spirits of the sky, teach us how to fly
Spirits of the East, into our Circle come

Spirits of the air, we’re calling you
Spirits of the air, we’re calling you here
Spirits of the air, we’re calling you here and now

Spirits of the Fire bring us our desire
Spirits of the flame, burn away the pain
Spirits of the South, into our Circle come

Spirits of the fire, we’re calling you
Spirits of the fire, we’re calling you here
Spirits of the fire, we’re calling you here and now

Spirits of the ocean, deepen our emotion
Spirits of the sea, let the soul be free
Spirits of the West, into our Circle come

Spirits of the sea, we’re calling you
Spirit of the sea, we’re calling you here
Spirits of the sea, we’re calling you here and now

Spirits of the land, help us understand
Spirits of the earth, bring us re-birth
Spirits of the North, into our Circle come

Spirits of the land, we’re calling you
Spirits of the land, we’re calling you here
Spirits of the land, we’re calling you here and now

Singing to the Rain

I am singing to the rain.
Gentle rain, precious rain,
come again, come again.

Fall to the ground,
let life abound.
Fall to the earth,
bring us rebirth.

I am singing to the rain.
Holy rain, spirit rain,
come again, come again.

Rise with Fire

(Reclaiming & Friends)

We can rise with the fire of freedom.
Truth is the fire that burns our chains.
And we can stop the fire of destruction.
Healing is the fire running through our veins.

Return

(Tymn Urban)

Return to the mountain,
return to the stone.
Return to the Mother,
into the unknown.
Return to the wind,
return to the sky.
Return to the Father,
on swift wings fly.
Return to the passion,
return to the flame.
Cleansed in your fire,
never be the same.
Return to the ocean,
return to the rain.
Return to the rivers
flowing through your veins.

Remember the Way

Remember the way of the wind
and breathe and blow.
Remember the way of the fire
and sparkle and glitter and glow.
Remember the way of the water
and ebb and flow.
Remember the way of the earth
and grow.
