Dance of Life Rite

Summer breezes blow
Flower petals dance for the show
Grasses bend in sparkling light
Leaves rustle in Pale moonlight

Light footed we go
To the circle we are bound
Hail and be welcome my brethren
The dance of life abounds

Sweet the water drops
Into the pond of life we call home
Merrily it sings it's song of life
Hail Water your protection is shown

Deep and quite the Earth caves show
Trembling beneath it's might we go
Ever strong is the rock of the soul
Hail Mighty Earth your protection we would know

Dancing with life the winds in my face
Hurrying it's way to the summers glow
Arms now spread wide to the flow
Hail Wind ward brother your protection we embrace

Fire crackles in the summers heat
Sunshine long sought beats down on our heads
Dance we now to its insistent beat
Hail Fires flickering touch your protection we seek

Joyous is the reunion of family
Now that the winters wind has blow it's last
Time to take stock of survivors
Time to restore ways that last
Time to renew the bonds of community
Both present and past

Time to mend the fences
Time to make redress
Time to light the fires of hope
To mend the winters distress
Time to travel to far away places
To reap a new harvest there
Time to spread ones wings and fly
Time to show we care

Hail Great Mother Creator of the World
Woman of the Wheel of Time
Who is Beyond all Time and Space
Teacher of all things that Matter on this Earth
Harmony and the Blessing Way
Great Mother of Life, Death and Rebirth
Be with us on this Day

Sweet is thy Bounty Great Mother of Old
From the Sleep of Death the Land you Awaken
May our hearts rise up to greet the dawn
May our faith never be shaken

Fill up our souls with the innocence of a new day
Heal the heart, mind and soul of any bane
Fill the heart with love, no more the dreary ways
Time now to court the summers rays

Dance the dance of the children
Light footed as they play
Each day is the only day that matters
Each moment a chance to take a new way
Let us not forget the lesson of the children
Let small hands show us the brightness of the day

Listen to the drum beat as it's the Mothers heart
Close your eyes and open your soul
Let the body do it's part
Feel the pulse of life pound
While we dance the dance of renewal
Here on sacred ground

Feel the soul spin out into the Void
Seeking a new path to walk in sunlight's ways
Dance we now, on the rainbow bridge
Where a heartbeat lasts for days
Seek we now, the pathways of the Light
Here where the Light ever stays

Slowly now, like a feather on the wind
Return you now home again
Gently take up the bodies space
Like the waters cool embrace
Breath the Rainbows fire so sweet
Feel the Earth beneath your feet

Hail Mighty Mother of summers warm embrace
We thank you for the dance of life
Our sprit is free again

Sweet the water dropped
Into the pond of life we call home
Merrily it sang its song of life
Hail Water your protection was known

Deep and quite the Earth caves did show
Trembling beneath it's might we went
Ever strong is the rock of the soul
Hail Mighty Earth your protection is spent

Dancing with life the wind was in my face
Hurrying it's way to the summers glow
Arms were spread wide to the flow
Hail Wind ward brother your protection we embraced

Fire crackled in the summers heat
Sunshine long sought beat down on our heads
Danced we to it's insistent beat
Hail Fires flickering touch your protection was meet
