April 30th is the Eve of Beltane. Beltane is a time of fun and playfulness, of fertility and new beginnings, the music, food, and rituals of Beltane represent the coming of summer. I enjoy the music of Deep Within a Faerie Forest as part of my getting in the mindset for the magick of Beltane. Sharing The Invocation:
by Patricia Telesco
Feathered winds come dance with me
Lift me from the ground.
Join my waltz, my spirit, freed
As we’re upward bound.
Tongues of flame come jump with me
Ye purifying fires,
Join my joy, my playful glee
As we move yet higher.
Tears from seas, come sing with me
Roll from out the caves,
Join my verse, my body cleansed
In your healing waves.
Mother Earth come laugh with me
Set aside your toils,
Join my chant of forests green
Secure me in rich soil.
Earth and Air, Fire and Sea
I call you all, come dance with me!
Grant me now a sacred space
While working magic in this place
