Candlemas Dance

Post by Windwalker » Wed Jan 10, 2007 2:11 pm

Hey, guys! I just came across a poem I wrote last Imbolc. It's far from perfected but I thought I'd post the draft, seeing as Imbolc is coming up for you guys in the Northern Hemisphere. It's slightly too Horned God-centric, I'll have to insert more of the Lady for me to be completely happy with it. Maybe another two stanzas. And I need to polish it a little - some of it doesn't scan the way I want it to. But I'll post it anyway, because Sagewolf reminded me of it with the prayers she posted :-)

Candlemas Dance

Dance the sun into the sky
With nimble feet and eager souls
Delight in the coming warmth
Stoke the fire, burn the coals

Invoke the Horned One to your heart
And revel in His endless joy
Come ye all and join our dance
Man and woman, girl and boy

Passion heat your heart and skin
And skyclad dance around the fire
Erase the cold with warmth within
And call the rising power higer

The Horned One stalks the midnight woods
As both the Predator and Prey
Along His Holy footsteps run
And celebrate the Sabbat Day

Ignore the cares that weigh you down
And lose yourself in passion's hold
For just today embrace His heat
And dance away the winter's cold

With Candlemas the spring begins
The Horned One warms the Mother's breast
With open hearts we welcome Him
And each and every soul is blessed.
