Red flame, white fire,
And I knew that she was with me, always.
In the warmth of an embrace that was not seen,
In the softness of whispered words heard only by the soul's ear,
In the bright spark of her inspiration, shaping words to song.
Brigid, guiding my steps;
Brigid, showing the way;
Brigid, watching over all.
Hand that strengthens the smith's hand;
Smile that heals the sick;
Voice that rings with the flash of the muse's gift.
Gentle and mild,
Be with me, fearless, and
Guard over me when I fear;
Be with me, unraging, and
Calm my temper when fury strikes;
Be with me, sweet calm one, and
Comfort me those dark nights
When sorrow comes.
Author's Notes: As a Brigidine flametender, I've always felt it funny that most of the deific inspiration I received was through Apollo, for the Greek pantheon, rather than through Brigid. That changed this morning, when She finally spoke to that part of my soul in a most personal way.
