We all come from the Goddess

And to her we shall return

All that falls shall rise again.

Nonesuch or Lady’s Bransle

Oh, she will bring the buds in the spring

And laugh among the flowers

In summer's heat her kisses are sweet

She sings in leafy bowers

She cuts the cane and gathers the grain

When leaves of fall surround her

Her bones grow old in wintry cold

She wraps her cloak around her.

Close your eyes forget your every care

Picture fairy castles in the air

Magic is in store for you 

You might find your dreams come true

When you wake your wishes may be there.

May the peace of the Goddess be ever in your Heart!

Merry Meet and Merry Part,

Dancing in the desert

Drumming in the thunder

Flowing in the moon-filled tide

Dreaming in the ocean

Singing in the forest

Running in the wild mare’s stride  Chorus


Hiding in the forest

Running down the mountain

Soaring in an eagle’s flight

Falling in the raindrops

Changing in the seasons

Shining in the rainbow light  Chorus


Riding in the wind storm

Drifting in the snow fall

Budding in the springtime leaves

Peeking through the branches

Whispering Her secrets

As the Universe She weaves.  Chorus


Sisters of the Moon

My heart starts dancing with my Sisters of the Moon

Deep in the forest or sitting in my room

My spirit's dancing with my Sisters of the Moon!


Time will dance to eternity's tune

The rising and the setting of our Mother, the Moon!  Chorus


Raising a Circle from far and from near

Rising together in love and good cheer  Chorus


From dark to light we gather as one

The spell is cast and the magic's begun!  Chorus


The Day Is Past and Gone

Appalachian tune

The day is past and gone

The evening shade appears, appears

Oh, may we all remember well

The time when thin is the veil!


We will lay our sadnesses by

And in the bower of time, we rest, we rest

Within the gentle arms of our Mother the Earth,

In the time of dreams, She calls us to rebirth


Lord and Lady, we lie within your hands this night

Safely kept from all our fears, our fears, our fears

Spirits of Earth and Air, Fire and Water guard our dreams

Till the morning light appears.


Great Mother Lullaby

Chorus:  Great Mother, keep watch over me

Night birds are singing and I must sleep

Stay by my side.  Guard every dream

Till the morning light wakens the world.


Velvet, the darkness caresses the soul

Bright shining stars begin their song

Chasing away cares of the day

Singing of love and of dreams come true.  Chorus


Sorrow's a tune that is meant for the day

"Comfort and peace." whispers Night's own song

Moon rises high.  Dream time is nigh.

Worries and cares must fade away.  Chorus
