Samhain Chant (by Doreen Valiente)

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-turning.
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 ...

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 ....

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 ...

(Doreen Valiente, Witchcraft For Tomorrow)
