Invocation to Manawyddan

Manawyddan we call to thee
to cross over to our homeland
and set your sails free
to part the veil that is between
the Otherworlds and ours
so that we may
commune with thee Shining Ones,
many blessings there shall be.

Manawyddan, opener of every gate
you are brother to Bran and Branwen
father of Pryderi and love to Rhiannon.
Bring them across the seas
so we may join with the Shining Ones
and offer our love to thee.

Honoring Mother Earth

Triskele Oh Earth Mother! We praise thee!

through the shining birch,
through the lively pine,
through the mighty oak,
We praise thee! For all things,
Oh Earth Mother, who givest life.

People of the Oak

We are the people of the Oak
Gathered at the sacred well
Joined here the old ones to invoke
So to weave our magic spell.
We are the people of the wood
Standing in a faerie ring
Here, where the shining ones stand
Praises to the gods we bringWood Awen

Flame Within

Burn bright, flame within
Kindled of eternal fire
Of the people I do be and the people part of me
All one in many parts a single fire of flaming hearts
(......repeat entire song a few times)

Walk With Wisdom

Walk with wisdom, from this hollowed place
Walk not in sorrow, our roots shall ever embrace
May strength be your brother, and honor be your friend
May luck be your lover, until we meet again
(....repeat the song a few times)
