Sweeping Songs

Sweeping Songs

Willow and Ash Branch:   WillowAndAsh

Willow and ash branch, tied ‘neath the moon,
Lend us your magick, finish the rune.
As the Triple Goddess, all three entwine,
Maid, Crone and Mother ancient as time.

Dance ‘round the circle, dance where ye will,
Traces of magick echoing still.
All hearts are one heart, beneath moon and sun*
Here in this circle the spell has begun.

*Original lyric is “when all Gods are One”

Corn of Golden Broom/ Besom:  cornofgolden

Corn of golden broom
Tied ‘neath the moon
Ashen handle, oak seed charm
Dance in magic, ward off harm
Chorus:
Weave the circle well
Weave the enchantment well
Sweep the circle well
Sweep the circle well

By the sickle shorn,
By the maiden born,
Tread the floor and thread the air
By the spellcraft that we bear

Chorus:
Weave the circle well
Weave the enchantment well
Sweep the circle well
Sweep the circle well

Rowan and Bracken: (aka The dOIge) rowanandbracken.mp3

Chorus:
Rowan and bracken, bracken and thorn
The light moon is waning, the dark moon is born.
Kali, Hecate and ancient Danae,
Storm moon and crone moon dance in your sway.

Gone is the morning, dark is the night,
The rade in stone circles is danced in moon’s light.
Willow be bowed and ash tree be blown,
Black crow shall sing now the song of the crone.

Chorus:
Rowan and bracken, bracken and thorn,
The light moon is waning, the dark moon is born.
Kali, Hecate and ancient Danae,
Storm moon and crone moon dance in your sway.

Bluebell, bluebell did I hear you ring?
In moorland and wood knoll your death toll you sing.
Bright is the candle but dark is the heart,
And deep is the darkness where the Veil has it’s part.

Chorus:
Rowan and bracken, bracken and thorn,
The light moon is waning, the dark moon is born.
Kali, Hecate and ancient Danae,
Storm moon and crone moon dance in your sway.
