The Dance of the Circle
Age Group: Adult
The Dance of the Circle
The young maid, dancing under the star lit sky
Unashamedly naked and free, full of life and zest.
She dances the dance of life and of things to come.
Energetic and exuberant, wild and free,
She dances of the future of what will be.
The Mother, full breasted with belly overflowing,
Pregnant with life of the things that are.
Self assured and confident, sensuous and vibrant.
The vessel of Life waiting to be borne from the womb.
Mother, Prectecoress, Life bearer, Creator of all.
She dances the dance of love fulfilled.
The Crone, aged and wise, body withered and old,
Life lived and lessons learned.
Wise with the wisdom of countless ages, she has seen it all.
Stately and slowly, She walks the path of the Circle that she has
Trod so many times before.
She is there to greet us at the portals of Summerland,
To counsel us and give us rest and peace at the end of our days.
Preparing us once again to greet the Maid and to be borne anew by the Mother.
She dances the dance of what was and what will be.
The Horned One, antlered and cloven hoofed.
Virile and strong, stern and compassionate, fierce and gentle.
Phallus erect, full of the seed of fertility to join in the dance of life
with the Mother.
Son, Lover, Father, Consort, King of the holly and oak.
The Dread Lord who gives us peace at the end of our days
And greets and protects us till it is time again to be reborn.
He dances the dance of life renewed.
The seasons come and the seasons go,
What is will be, what will be, is.
We are born, we live, die and are reborn again,
Ever renewing, changing, growing, living, dying, and reliving again.
We all dance the dance of the Circle,
For we are part of the Maid and of the Mother,
The Crone and the Horned One, and they are part of us.
We seek, they answer with love and life, peace and rest.
We are they, they are us.
