A night before Winter rite

Dark is the night
The full moon makes bright
To wend our way to the ritual tonight

Breathe deep the sounds of twilight's gloom
Drink up the light of the wandering moon
Feel the rustle as the leaves hurry by
Your eyes feel the glory of fires that run high

Hail Uller
The Brilliant One
Bringer of the Glory
of the Northern Lights
Keeper of Winters might
May your hand be light
Upon the world

Soon to sleep
to Earth we bow deep
Hail to Gaia, our Mothers glory

Cold the winds blow
the leaves rustle low
Hail to Aether, Lifes breath unfolds

Warm we our souls
By the fires light
Hail to Vulcan
Keeper of the forge of life

Sweet the water flows
From the rives so deep
Hail to Enki
Who brings life unto us all

The shutters shift and moan
With the winds dance of change
Ashs blow from the hearth stones
Leafless trees rattle like bones
Yet we are safe within
Our Mothers arms

The land has given freely
The bounty gives up its favor
blessed be the life force its given
so that we may know its savor

A Feasting we go this windy night
Our Families we do gather
By Aurora borealis light
Laid well is table with the harvest fare
Merry is the heart in the pale moonlight

Soon the frost King will arrive
We prepare ourselves for his favor
Make tight the house, bless well the door
To keep well and safe while the world slumbers

To each living thing our Great Mother
Give a wisdom, to pass the winter night
To sleep, to burrow, to hunt, to follow
All to pass into springtime's light

Give blessing that the wind howls at your door
That ye have a door to rattle
Give thanks for the chill of the stone floor
That thou has a space to call home

Blessed are thee, for such grace
And on this day, we give thanks
That we live to face another winters night

Blessings we give, to those who have not
Blessings on those who linger
In the doorway of life and death
Blessings to those who brave the cold night
To keep others safe with their might
Blessings on the land
That it gave us such grace
Blessings on the animals
That gave their lives to sustain us
Blessings on all things, that allow us
To face yet another winters night

Blessed be

Soon to sleep
to Earth we bowed deep
Hail to Gaia, our Mothers glory

Cold the winds blew
the leaves rustleed low
Hail to Aether, Lifes breath unfolded

Warmed we our souls
By the fires light
Hail to Vulcan
Keeper of the forge of life

Sweet the water flowed
From the rivers so deep
Hail to Enki
Who brings life unto us all
