Samhain Chant

by Lady Rain StarDragon (Teresa Garcia)

Age Group: Adult



The wind blows through the Standing Stones,
And dragons take to wing.
I dance through the forest dark homes,
Spiraling the Faerie’s Ring!

The old year is ended and laid now to burn,
And so the Wheel turns.
The dead to us happily return
While Mother’s Cauldron churns!

This time of year I need no trance!
Around the bonfire hot and bright
We will dance Creation’s Dance
All the Samhain night!

Fearlessly I’ll leap the dancing blaze
In the spirit of all my kin
I’ll whirl onward though this maze
That hides deep within.

I will dance the Spiral Dance
Whirling in to Death
I will gaily caper and out prance,
Again with Life’s Breath.

If you hear the Hounds’ voices bay
Across the misty moor,
Greet ye without fear the Lady Fey
That knocks upon your door.

Dance with the Witches and the Fey,
Dance with the Dragons
And Dance by the Gypsie’s Wagons.
Dance with the Lady Grey.

The wind blows through the Standing Stones,
Where the Ancient chants ring.
I dance through the forest dark homes,
Spiraling with the Hawk’s wing!

The old year is ended and laid now to burn,
And so the Wheel turns.
The dead to us happily return
While Mother’s Cauldron churns!

This time of year the veil wears thin!
Around the bonfire hot and bright
The Spirit is conjured within
There upon the mystic height!

Fearlessly I’ll carry the Blazing Coal
In the Spirit of all my Kin
I’ll produce the Sacred Toll
That hides deep Within.

I will dance the Spiral Dance
Whirling in to Death
I will gaily caper and out prance,
Again with Life’s Breath.

If you hear the Hounds’ voices bay
Across the misty moor,
Greet ye without fear the Lady Fey
That knocks upon your door.

Dance with the Witches and the Fey,
Dance with the Dragons
And Dance by the Gypsie’s Wagons.
Dance with the Lady Grey.




Author's Notes: I wrote this song/poem to be sung at the latest Samhain (Halloween) gathering I went to.

Feel free to use this song in your rituals next year, and yes you may write in it your Book of Shadows as well for those who keep one. Just please remember to note that I wrote it, and to drop me a line.

Later on I hope to record it (we didn't have recording equipment with us) . When I do, I'll post it up in Bardic Circle. Please enjoy this gift my brothers and sisters.
