Songs & Runes

This section of the site is for longer pieces that are really songs rather than short chants. I will also add things here that are spoken runes. FYI: a spoken rune is a sequence of rhythmically spoken words or sounds that raise energy or alter consciousness. I use a lower bitrate on these to save bandwidth.

My Lady Moon


A story song about a moment of wonder betwixt and between.

Moon Sword

Lyrics

“My Lady Moon”


Road weary and alone


I parked beneath a Rowan tree


To walk, to stretch, 

   to watch the Moon’s rising



My Lady Moon 

clothed in veils of woven cloud


Her light lay like 

   a sword upon the waters


And the stars hung 

   from the trees like radiant fruit




The grasses were green flames


Dancing with the swaying breeze


While the wild rose sang 

with fragrant cadence




Then I heard the screech of wheels

Parting worlds that once were one




Ripples from road tossed gravel


Scattered the sword of light


But headlights


Caught a fleeting form


And so I knew


Though I could not take up the sword


Nor pluck a starry fruit


I knew at least there were Elves




My Lady Moon 

clothed in veils of woven cloud


Her light lay like 

a sword upon the waters


And the stars hung 

from the trees like radiant fruit

Our Hearts


A song for the change of the Ages and Aeons.

OurHearts

Lyrics

“Our Hearts”


I stand where the Maimed King did battle 
The Land lies barren and bare 


Dire wolves howl and bone chimes rattle 
A poxed Moon poisons the air 


I stand where stand the Goddess lies bleeding 


The damn fool walks in a rage 


Her cries go without heeding 


My heart goes clothed in a cage 




But now I will stand for it no more 


But now I will stand for it no more 




Now this cycle is ending 


Love has filled me to the core 


Now Dark and Light my heart are mending 


The World's health we will restore 


For magic is afoot 


The Goddess is awake

And the Sidhe stir from under the Hill 




Respect is due 

The Lady of the Lake 


And the Dancer by the rill 



The Wheel turns again 


The Moon still circles round 


And the Sidhe stir from under the Hill 




Our hearts are the treasures we've unbound 


So live and love we will 


So live and love we will 


So live and love 
So mote it be

Battle Hymn of the Resistance


A song for our times by Gwendolyn Reece.

AthenaColumbia

Lyrics

Battle Hymn of the Resistance


When we rise up and claim our power

The Good, it cannot fall.

We take up the shield of service

To defend the rights of all.


[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.


We defend the Constitution,

Rule of Law across the land.

When blind Justice, She is threatened

We will not let it stand.


[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.


We tend the Hearth of Kindness,

Soul of Democracy.

Welcome tired, poor, huddled masses

Yearning to breathe free.


[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.


Our Healer’s Cup we offer

To all souls who have need.

We work to heal our nation

Of hatred and of greed.


[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.


Our visionary garden blooms

With dreams we bring to birth,

Of what society can be

If we dare to love the Earth.


 [Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.


So rise up and claim your power

Together we will grow.

See America as we should be

And we will make it so.


[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

and will make things right.

Bridget's Fires


BrigidsFiresmall

Back in 2006, I got an email from Jera Runesinger of SerpentOak with lyrics and a midi file as a submission to the original chant website.  Sadly, that was in the last gasp days of the old site. 

So, I spent some time with Garageband and can came up with this in 2010 and posted it here in 2012. 

I am trying to track Jera down to let her know I've reposted her song.



Lyrics

Bridget’s Fires   

May my Hearth glow bright. May my home be blessed. In the deep of night, may my sorrows find rest. When my weary eyes rest on the fires haze, Goddess lend your ear as these words I pray

Hearth and Head, Hands and heart, Bridget’s fires, within me burn. Hearth and Head, Hands and heart, Bridget’s fires, within me burn

May my thoughts burn pure till my goals I reach. May I live and learn from the lessons you teach. May I see your face in the fires bright rays. Goddess lend your ear as these words I pray

Hearth and Head, Hands and heart, Bridget’s fires, within me burn. Hearth and Head, Hands and heart, Bridget’s fires, within me burn  

May my hands make things that are good and strong. May they heal and hold when the troubles are long. May I carve my life under Bridget’s gaze. Goddess lend your ear as these words I pray

Hearth and Head, Hands and heart, Bridget’s fires, within me burn. Hearth and Head, Hands and heart, Bridget’s fires, within me burn

May my heart beat strong when it’s cracked and torn. May it show no trace of the scars it has worn. May the light of love shine in darker days. Goddess lend your ear as these words I pray

Hearth and Head, Hands and heart, Bridget’s fires, within me burn. Hearth and Head, Hands and heart, Bridget’s fires, within me burn
