in Wheel of the Year, Wordless Wednesday

(Not quite wordless!)

We welcome you, Brigit, on Candlemas Eve,
We pray for your blessing new life to receive, 
O Mother of Poetry, teach me your art, 
That your inspiration may enter my heart.

O Mistress of Magic that stands by the fire 
And shapes the bright metal to the form you desire; 
O Mother of Smithcraft, please teach me your art, 
That the power of changing may enter my heart.

You kindle the springtime to quicken the earth, 
From under your mantle the old has new birth, 
O Mother of Healing, please teach me your art, 
That peace and contentment may enter my heart.

Mara Freeman, Kindling the Celtic Spirit

    Just a note to say, as a near neighbor, how lovely it is to see you drawing to you what you need from the bounty of our bones here, rather than taking wholesale and tearing away what doesn’t fit.

    I just ordered The Spirit of Place after reading one of your 2010 posts.
    Thumbs up! Sharyn
