Beneath the square ___ Of Arthur's Wain
The Faery Mounds ___ So long have lain
Like sleeping giants ___ On the Land
Like dreams we seek ___ To understand.
The Darkest Night ___ Has come around
The bay of Hounds ___ The only sound
As star-white steeds ___ Race through the wind
And branches rattle ___ And dry leaves spin.
Flashing silver ___ Pierces the Moon
Swords held high ___ Against the gloom.
Wheels of fire ___ Roll on by
As shields are raised ___ Against the sky.
Gwynn ap Nudd ___ In white and red
Heads the Hunt ___ Of the Ancient Dead
Into the realm ___ Of darkened Light
A mighty Band ___ Charges in swift flight.
This Night holds both ___ Beginning and end.
The Wheel has come ___ Full Circle again.
The past and future ___ Come into our sight
All becomes One ___ On this magick Night.
Between the heavens ___ And the earth
The Way now opens ___ To bring forth
The Hosts of those ___ Who went on before-
They come riding now ___ Through the Open Door.
Dark Wild Hunters ___ Racing the Year.
Time stands still as ___ Past and Future appear
Encircled between ___ The Dark and the Light-
Together again ___ On this Samhain Night.
