Blessings Of Beltane

 

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.
