Dew Kissed and Beltane Blessed by Bendis

 

hawthorn gathered in the may
atop a tree of birch
gaily blowing in the wind
rainbow ribbons spin

dew kissed, we shall awake
a blessing to the Earth
and greet the sun on morning rise
with laughter and sweet mirth

queen of may, jack o'green
bless the fields and land
lively dancing kissing twirling
ribbons in the hand

 

 

king making, goddess blessed
sacred vows of ancient days
wrapping ribbons round the pole
dance the sacred ways

spread the grass make a bed
lay upon the land
spill the seed bless the night
lovers hand in hand

come my love, walk with me
we'll lay upon the grass
our love to bless this night
and watch the moonlight pass

Happy Beltane

Bendis
