Imbolc, from Lisa Thiel’s album Circle of the Seasons

Bléssed Bridget comest thou in
Bless this house and all of our kin
Bless this house, and all of our kin
Protect this house and all within

Bléssed Bridget come into thy bed
With a gem at thy heart and a crown on thy head
Awaken the fire within our souls
Awaken the fire that makes us whole

Bléssed Bridget, queen of the fire
Help us to manifest our desire
May we bring forth all that as good and fine
May we give birth to our dreams in time

Bléssed Bridget comest thou in
Bless this house and all of our kin
From the source of Infinite Light
Kindle the flame of our spirits tonight

Bléssed Bridget come into thy bed
With a gem at thy heart and a crown on thy head
Awaken the fire within our souls
Awaken the fire that makes us whole

Bléssed Bridget, queen of the fire
Help us to manifest our desire
May we bring forth all that as good and fine
May we give birth to our dreams in time

Bléssed Bridget comest thou in
Bless this house and all of our kin
From the source of Infinite Light
Kindle the flame of our spirits tonight

Maiden of Spring, from Heather Alexander’s album Merlin’s Descendants

Come Lady, play with me, all of the day with me.
Let me come lay with thee, maiden of spring.
Please let me dance with thee, gambol and prance with thee.
Let this romancing be our song to sing.

I will adorn with you flowers new-born with you
‘Til we have worn them through into the night.
You have now heard my song; every last word is strong,
Like a wild bird along its morning flight

Let us pick flowers where we can spend hours there,
And all the powers dare as we first kiss.
Held tight within my arms, protected here from harms,
Moonlight to lend its charms, quickening our bliss

If we stay tarrying here in this faerie ring,
We will be carrying love’s special seal.
Hand to hand let us be free but forgetlessly,
Ever to blesséd be part of life’s wheel.

Come Lady, play with me, all of the day with me.
Let me come lay with thee, maiden of spring.

The Wild Song, from Anuna’s album Invocation

A pale bird flies over open sea
Singing sweet soul music to me.
The ancient winds crying cold and flying free
Carry winter whispers through the trees.

A soft voice murmers a haunting melody
As it flows to the river from a stream.
The gentle breeze carries youthful memory
Through the shaded valley of my dreams.

I have come through the darkness
Touched the moon’s new fallen dew.
I have found there a place
Where the wild song echoes, echoes in my heart.

There the dawn is wide with the scent of spring
With a red sun burning on the tide.
In the hazel forest the blackbird sings
Of a secret place I keep inside.

I have travelled far, I have made the road my home,
But that music never will depart.
I have walked the shoreline where seabirds cry alone,
But a wild song echoes in my heart.

I have come through the darkness,
Touched the moon’s new fallen dew.
I have found there a place
Where the wild song echoes, echoes in my heart.
Where the wild song echoes, echoes in my heart.
