Summerland

I am traveling to the West
To find eternal rest
I am traveling to the West
To find my Summerland

I have seen the sun rise
I have seen the moon set
I am going to the West
Do not cry my dearest

My face is glowing in my faith
I have not regrets behind me
I have journeyed to the west
To find eternal rest

I have tasted summer wine
I have feasted in winter time
I have journeyed one last time
I close my eyes one last time.
I breathe one last time.

As I shut my eyes at last
I will see the doorway
I will greet our goddess
I will be contented

I have seen the sun rise
I have seen the moon set
I am going to the West
Do not cry my dearest

When it’s time for you to come
I will be with the goddess
Don’t forget me dearest one
Where the sun never sets.

Fairy Ball

 

Dancing through the night
Under pale moonlight
Looking up at twinkling starlight.

Swaying to and fro
Twisting ’round on painted toe,
At the ball tonight.

Held under pale moonlight
Are dancing Elves and Sprites
Swaying to and fro
The Faery Ball is a glittering delight.

Sheltering by blooming hedges,
Eyes wide in wonderment.
Lights from the moon,
Show the earth folk at play.

In full swing with wonderous sounds,
Tinkling laughs and flashes of color,
The Fairy Ball is at it’s height.

But young eyes have had their fill,
Slumber becons and hails them still,
Gentle whispers lull sleep in,
Child of night is left a dreaming.

Of whimsy, beauty and song most bright.
Of dresses and food and The Folk at play.
A ray of sunlight brings the child awake,
Remembering swaying to and fro,
Fairies twisting ’round on painted toe,
At the ball last night.

Selene

I turn my face to yours.
Such a gentle touch you give, my Selene.
I look with awe and love to the sky.

Inhaling the sweet scent of forest green and pine all around.
I feel and hear your gentle breath as it wynds through the trees.

Ah, your face is already engaged in close water source by my feet.
Show me your glowing face and push away the shadows.
