A Summoning

It's Halloween today, and this poem draws upon ancient traditions of theurgy, and also the lore of Peln.

A Summoning

Of memory past, of lives now gone
I summon thee, these stones tonight
To sing once more the sacred songs
Come here beneath this star lit night

Of the ages past, of the wisdom old
I summon thee, from the sea and sky
To give us this courage to be bold
Come to us where the ancients lie

Of bones of dead, of ancient time
I summon thee, by Saturn’s light
To join with us the past sublime
Come and smite the barrow wight

In thin places, we touch the veil
Of ashes lost, we tell the tale
