Poetry and such
This is a small collection, mostly of my own or my friends' writing (mine unless otherwise credited). If you have anything you find particularly meaningful, send it along, and it may be included in the next update. Check back for additions or changes.
- Baruch Ata Adonai
- This is a round for four voices by J. David Moore. It is based in Judeo-Christian theology, but most importantly, it is a prayer for peace. We can all use a little more of that, and it seems lately that Jerusalem can use it more than most.
- The Circle, by Ayslinn Firewynd
- A reincarnationist offering from another boldly romantic soul.
- Lady Emilie's Blessing
- Best for reading to Very Small Wiccans. If you can think of a tune that works for singing this, I'd love to hear about it.
- October, by David Melbye
- A wonderful, non-traditional use of some powerful Christian imagery. We've all got knee-jerk reactions to certain words and images. It's good to challenge them.
- Persephone, by Jenny Harding
- A beautiful thing by the lady who was kind enough to start me out on this path. I've never heard a better version of what spring feels like, especially if you live in a Cold Place.
- Sleeping Beauty, by Taliannon
- A wee little Imbolc poem from a new friend. Long life to the rhymers...
- Solstice (aka The Leatherleaf Suite)
- This is what it used to look like at night, looking at the ravine behind my house.
- Song to Brigid, by J. David Moore
- A simple, pretty song for Imbolc. Just the thing for a happy holiday chant.
- To the Goddess
- I don't guess you have to be from Minnesota to appreciate this, but it certainly helps.
