Common Ground: The Kinship of Metaphysicians
Connecting the esoteric teachings of Rosicrucians, Theosophists and Freemasons with Witches, Pagans and Heathens
A Prayer for Samhain
Great Lord and Lady heed our plea:
Relieved of sorrow we would be.
Though ravens croak an ancient tale
Of human yearnings doomed to fail,
Your minstrels sing an end more sweet -
The Summerland where loved ones meet.
Serene the promise you proclaim
Our seasons change, you stay the same.
Beneath our robes with runes ornate
Stand tired bodies, bruised by fate.
Our old decisions bind us fast.
Each fleeting breath could be our last -
And when we come to final grief
You'll snip the thread and give relief.
Your sickle cuts; your cauldron stirs
'Tween life and death the boundary blurs.
Our empty shells returned to earth,
Our better parts will see rebirth.
But, still we crave some wisdom learned
Before the wheel once more has turned.
Whoe'er we were, whate'er we felt,
We had to play the cards you dealt.
You shuffle well; we are your tools.
You make or bend or break the rules.
Dear Lord and Lady grant our plea,
That all our ends may blessed be.
