There is a Fire (Candlemas)

by Rain Feather

Age Group: Adult

There is fire that rocks in the heart of many
And I am that fire
Breath of the winds
Breath of the waters
That heal many
Breath of the Spirit
That comes by night
And flies by day and sunlight
Sway with me sweet wind
Build this fire
Ever being controlled
And yet no confinement
It is free ever-wavering
As I am all that was
And ever will be

Take the mountains
And become the songs
Songs of all birds
Songs of the war in dance of the Stag
And to this he finds me where
I am the dew he licks upon the leaf
And on the oak
He wraps his rack
Within him I am back

And in the ocean
They seek me not where I am to be found
Unless I and you are in tune with sound
I am Brigid
And among the gay, fair and mild fae
I am a virgin
And among the meek, lonely, tearful folk
I am the maiden of fertile yoke
And among the fearing, hateful men
I am the crone, war stalks again

And alas a breed of wild ones
They have come, O ye, they have come
And yet I smile and kiss you on the cheek
One for love and fire you seek
Two for justice and balance you seek
Three for truth and knowledge you seek

And I am the Fire
Where desire opens as a red, red rose
Rising higher through each and every grove
Old an Oak grows by the well
The fire burns and cast the spell
The centuries swell far into the past
Through the worlds I have been Bast
And into the flames I travel as I compose
This blessed Poet through her prose
These flames they grow!

And I am the Wind
Brigid I am
I shall come again and again
O synchronize
A sky
And shape-shifting clouds
Storms have come as I am the blanket across the sky
Thin veiled and shroud
And I ner’ disappoint the Poetess and the Poet
Into the future they are cast
As the breeze may carry them far, as seeds
Unto Three Wounds
I shall not say
Nor by night, nor by day
And ye shall seek me and find thy way
And thus my secret is revealed the seventh day

Fire I am
Upon the hearts of women
Upon the hearts of men
I am she
Queen of the Prowess
And Queen of the Lands
Inspired and Extraordinary
Approved there by many creatures
I have survived
Through the molten lava
Through your dreams
I am alive
I am Brigid
By the fiery arrow that thrusts
Swiftly swirling wind and dust
I am Brigid
And I am your flames
Through each and every chamber
I beat your life and death again
And birth be among those
This light as the Sun
I am Brigid
The Mistress of the Mantle
The flesh upon the nun
I am known by many names
Fourscore three and none
Through seven days the fire is kindled
And the web is spun

It is done!
