Blessed Samhain!!

More than shadows here tonight
Flicker in the firelight
More than echoes in the wind
More than breezes touch our skin

Draw them here across the Veil
Sing their praise and tell their tale
See the faces in the flames
Hear the voices, call the names

Pour libations to the ground
Fill the night with joyous sound
Stand before the fire bright
Hail the Dead this Samhain night

Pass the horn and sing the praise
Of those who walked in older days
Stand before the fire bright
Hail the Dead this Samhain night

Hail the Ancestors with me
Hail the Friends and Family
Hail the Spirits, Hail the Souls
Hail the night that makes us whole

They live in more than memory
The Veil so thin that we can see
The friends and loves that we long for
Are waiting on the other shore

Remember why we gather here
At the closing of the year
Stand before the fire bright
Hail the Dead this Samhain night

(excerpted from Samhain Night by yours truly)
