Samhain Chant


            Fire red, summer's dead
            Yet it shall return.
            Clear and bright, in the night,
            Burn, fire, burn!

            Chorus:
            Dance the ring, luck to bring,
            When the year's a-turninng.
            Chant the rhyme at Hallows-time,
            When the fire's burning.

            Fire glow, vision show
            Of the heart's desire,
            When the spell's chanted well
            Of the witching fire.

            Chorus:
            Dance the ring, luck to bring,
            When the year's a-turninng.
            Chant the rhyme at Hallows-time,
            When the fire's burning.

            Fire spark, when nights are dark
            Makes our winter's mirth.
            Red leaves fall, earth takes all,
            Brings them to rebirth.

            Chorus:
            Dance the ring, luck to bring,
            When the year's a-turninng.
            Chant the rhyme at Hallows-time,
            When the fire's burning.

            Fire fair, earth and air,
            And the heaven's rain,
            All blessed be, and so may we,
            at Hallows-tide again.

            Chorus:
            Dance the ring, luck to bring,
            When the year's a-turninng.
            Chant the rhyme at Hallows-time,
            When the fire's burning.
