Audience Count: 14,590
Wendy wrote the chorus of "Round and Round" as a closing chant for the first ritual where she acted as High Priestess. The verses grew from a vision that Wendy had during a 3 hour drum circle during a Beltane party at the Portal of the Porcupine in Piscataway, NJ. Wendy remarks, "after attending my first Starwood this past summer, I realized in retrospect that the vision I had was of Starwood and the fire circles there."

Round and Round
(words & music by Wendy Sheridan and Vonorn)
There's a glade in the forest where great bonfires burn Drummers beat out the rhythm, while the dancers sing and leap and clap and tap and turn Round and round, never end Open, never broken, oh, we will meet again Fate takes hold of our vision as we go into the night Let go, make no decision, dance around the bonfire light Sparks fly, spiral together away up into the sky Dancers and drummers forever keep the rhythm of the Goddess pulse of earth and life Round and round never end Open never broken we will meet again
