Come to the Dance

Song: Come To The Dance
Artist: Emerald Rose
Album: Archive Of Ages To Come

Come to the dance
We step in a circle
Dance to the earth
And your soul attunes

Come with us, sing for
The love of the Mother
Sing with the voice
Of the rising moon

Come to the dance
We do for the old ones
Dance into space
And time apart

Send up the call to
Those who will hear it
Arise all you
Of the Pagan heart

Away we’ll go
To the rhythm of
The pounding night

So we flow
From darkness
Into light

We may dream
From awakening
Into trance

So it seems
As we all
Come to the dance

Come to the dance
We step in a circle
Dance to the earth
And your soul attunes

Come with us, sing for
The love of the Mother
Sing with the voice
Of the rising moon

Come to the dance
We do for the old ones
Dance into space
And time apart

Send up the call to
Those who will hear it
Arise all you
Of the Pagan heart

Away we’ll go
To the rhythm of
The pounding night

So we flow
From darkness
Into light

We may dream
From awakening
Into trance

So it seems
As we all
Come to the dance

Come to the dance
We step in a circle
Dance to the earth
And your soul attunes

Come with us, sing for
The love of the Mother
Sing with the voice
Of the rising moon

Come to the dance
We do for the old ones
Dance into space
And time apart

Send up the call to
Those who will hear it
Arise all you
Of the Pagan heart

Away we’ll go
To the rhythm of
The pounding night

So we flow
From darkness
Into light

We may dream
From awakening
Into trance

So it seems
As we all
Come to the dance

Come to the dance
Come to the dance
Come to the dance
Come to the dance

Under a Beltane sun

by Damh the Bard

My shackled feet they long to be free from,
This modern Rome.
The ancient moors and the granite shores they are,
Calling me home.

(Chorus)

Sometimes this city is too much to bear,
I hear a calling in my soul,
The Mother’s waterways will take me,
Where life has begun,
Under a Beltane Sun.

Cuckoo calls and the seed falls as the,
Children play.
Skylark sings to the swift on the wing in the,
Bright clear day.

Salmon swims and the diamond stream sings with,
The blackbird’s song.
Voice in the breeze well it whispers please won’t you,
Sing along.

Beltane Fires

Song: Beltane Fires
Artist: Gaia Consort
Album: Secret Voices

A health to the mothers of the Merry Begotten
A health to the maiden with the firey eyes
A health to the crone that smiles beside us
On the other side of a Beltane Fire

A health to the sweet rain gently falling
Down upon the Earth so fair
A health to the wind that Gails around us
And feeds the passion of a Beltane Fire

A health to the lovley green-eyed Susan
She whose heart is my desire
And after all the May Pole’s rising
Will you leap with me now o’er a Beltane Fire?

Alternate verse
A health to the acts of love and pleasure
A health to the way the May poles rise
A health to those who bear no children
So those who do come along survive!

Eo! The Maiden and the horned one
Eo! The call to spill the seed
Eo! The stirring of the Cauldron
Eo Evohe!

Eo! The Green Man ever present
Eo! The Raven in the wood
Eo! The kisses ripe for tasting
Eo Evohe!

Eo! The rising of the sleepers
Eo! To hear the Pipe at dawn
Eo! The quickening is here
Eo Evohe!

Eo! The sweet rain gently falling
Eo! The seed deep in the Earth
Eo! I hear my lovers calling
Eo Evohe!

Eo! The lusty summer coming
Eo! The green leaf in the bud
Eo! The wild sap is running
Eo Evohe!

Eo! The musky Piper playing
Eo! The One Who Calls the Dance
Eo! The howling earth is saying
Eo Evohe!

Fairy NightSongs

(Gary Stadler)

Dancing a spiral we sing unaware
On fairy night wings our songs fill the air
Making a circle of magic and light
Watched silently by the Fey of the night

Our hearts full of love and our arms open wide
We hold the key to the fairies delight
Song in our hearts belong in the air
The words of our wisdom we bring forth to share

Weaving the Summer

Song: Weaving The Summer
Artist: Spiral Dance
Album: The Quickening

Hail to the summer
Hail to the summer
The season that drives
The cold winter away

Hail to the summer
Hail to the summer
Light your bonfire
Today is Beltane

High on mount Caburn
We look down on tolkien land
The mist rolls away
Catch the sun on the sea

Demigod

Song: Demigod
Artist: Wendy Rule
Album: Zero

When your wishes fall like dew
From a forbidding moon and rise in steam
Before a calling sun, then trust me darling
Life has just begun

When each sense seems sweetly sick
From over laden joy and life feels thick
To even honey touch
Lie with me in meadows sweet
I’ll offer you much
Much much more
