From the west
Comes old death
Ariding on
The storm

With hungry eyes
For funeral fires
To burn till the
Morrow's dawn

For tis the night
Here comes the dead
Unbound from
The underworld

And the children dress
As the babes of hell
All the boys
And all the girls

And the fires
Shall burn
And the wheel
Of life shall turn

And the dead
Come back home
On Samhain

And in
The night sky
On the lunar
Light they fly

And the dead
Come back home
On Samhain

At the Sabbat high
On the funeral hill
Wait the witches
At the feast

For the first winters day
The first winters sun
Arising in
The east

For Death has come
For the summertime
And to take the
Leaves of spring

Hecate
Nemesis
Dark Mother
Take us in

And the fires
Shall burn
And the wheel
Of life shall turn

And the dead
Come back home
On Samhain

And in
The night sky
On the lunar
Light they fly

And the dead
Come back home
On Samhain

And the fires
Shall burn
And the wheel
Of life shall turn

And the dead
Come back home
On Samhain

And in
The night sky
On the lunar
Light they fly

And the dead
Come back home
On Samhain

And the fires
Shall burn
And the wheel
Of life shall turn

And the dead
Come back home
On Samhain

And in
The night sky
On the lunar
Light they fly

And the dead
Come back home
On Samhain



I heard this whisper and I wondered,
I heard this laugh and then I knew.
The time is getting near my friends,
The time that I hold dear my friends,
The veil is getting thin my friends,
And strange things will pass through.
The Veil is Getting Thinner

No regrets cloud my thanks
no fear of the river,
slower now than the swift moving channel
I deigned to cut
in the exuberance of youth.

The River Lethe trickles through cracks
opened several summers ago
but not before I earned,
and still hold in my own right,
the gold coin Charon will demand,
though not a word be spoken,
not a breath exchanged.

As we make passage on the River Styx
I know not what lies ahead,
less of what I’ve left behind,
but I will go to complete
my preterdained journey to the otherworld
as the Ferryman leaves me off
and guides his boat
back to earthly shores.
Kaaren Whitney, The Ferryman
