Samhain Dance

Darker nights and chilly air

on this night do we invoke

brings all other worldly folk

draw the circle, call the quarters

Paralda, Djinn then Nixsa Gob

Dance the circle round it goes

Samhains here, the time of year when the veil is thinnest

inviting those who’ve gone before, so ask them what you will

bring them honor, love and dance, together we will cast a spell

friend and family may soon come so set a plate and beat the drum to startle those we would not want, the hauntings of a mischievous lot

make merry while the circles cast, sharing laughter wine and dance

for times remembered and times to be

and in the end at circles close

back through your feet the circle goes down to the Mother of us all on this Hallow night each Fall.
