with gratitude across the land.
The winter months are nearly past,
with hours of daylight growing fast!
The Earth is in Her quickening -
the promise of new life She brings!
Soon the sap of trees will flow,
as seedlings push through depths of snow.
In preparation for this day,
our Besoms swept old dust away.
With homes and heads all cleared anew
Young God, our Sun, we welcome you!
Relax now Goddess, breathe a sigh -
accept our gifts as we pass by.
Your transformation's been a chore -
Crone to Maiden, achieved once more.
Now bonfires glow both wild and bright
Illuminating depths of night.
From dolls of Brigid and feasts for Pan
We share, in Honor, across the land!
