Spring Strasthpey
Gwidion Pennderwen

Myrddyn was playing his pipes in the wood
And it sounded sae good to my feeling
Hiree Hiroo sang the dance in the blood
And my fresh maidenhood started reeling

Chorus:   Sweetly it drew me, the sound, it went through me
As if sure it knew me, a maiden-song, laughing long
I'm sure that I hear it!  Oh, let me draw near it!
I want to be merrily courted in Spring!

Round us the trees formed a wheel in my mind
As if all womankind were careering
Softly, he touched me.  Our hands intertwined
And we softly reclined in the clearing.    Chorus

Dewfall to starfall, he made love to me
In a manner sae free and revealing
Swift-footed, light-footed, goat-footed he
Played a sweet melody with such feeling.   Chorus

Daybreak, and I wake to Spring's sweet bouquet
And a glorious day of beginning
Myrddyn has gone on his magical way
But the equinox day leaves me spinning.   Chorus

Soaring in an eagle’s flight

Falling in the raindrops

The Day Is Past and Gone

Lyrics  Ginger Ackley

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

Lyrics and Music by Ginger Ackley

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


Reclaim

Lyrics and Music by Ginger Ackley


You will not tell me that I'm not who I am

You will not tell me I'm untrue

You will not take what I do not freely give

I take my power back from you!


For the ones who lived in darkness

For the ones who lived in fear

And wear the scars of hurt and grief and pain - 

Listen to the Heartbeat of the Mother as She cries

And reaches out to help you break the chain.


Footsteps

Weaver Goddess, this I pray!


Greenwoman

Lyrics and Music by Ginger Ackley


Greenwoman stepping in the forest glen

Trees bowing low as She dances in


Chorus:  Green Woman, Wild Woman, Strong Woman, Tree Woman

Earth Woman, Deer Woman, Real Woman, True Woman

Elen of the Ways!


Greenwoman walks where the deer have been

Lighting up the path to call you in    Chorus


Greenwoman dances where the spirits play

Shining in the moonlight that's bright as day!   Chorus
