Druid’s Tale

Come gather round
The fire of sound
Draw forth the knife
Fear no strife
From soul bled
Spirit led
Drop upon the fire thee
Invoke what one might see
From fire come forth
Spirits of the north
Tell the tale of ancient might
Tell the tale of ancient sight
Far away in glowing mist
Distant island far amiss
High king and champions stand
Roots of magic within the land
Upon the mound of Severed Heads
Hungry god whom he fed
Time of lust
Of much disgust
Drove all to hate and slay
Oh so insecure was each day
Fed and led
Spirit of dread
Survival invoked spirit
Attack any threat near it
Half of a whole
Souls he stole
Upon one night
Deep ritual sight
King and champions stand
Powerful ritual cast upon the land
Night glow was whole
Storm winds blow
Leaves of blood and fire
Ecstasy filled desire
River of sacrifice ran red
Countless enemies captured bled
Trophies displayed high
Screams cast to the sky
Frenzy unbound
Howls of the hound
Night of devotion
Energy as the ocean
The prowling one thus prowled
Invoking frenzy of the crowd
All sacrifices given
Nothing hidden
In praise the warriors sang
To forever remember name
Warriors caught in blood
Dancing in the frenzied flood
Fell upon ones own sword
Invoking the gods mighty word
Entrails pulled forth to claim eternal might
Bloody deeds cast this night
One and the other
Each one a brother
Sacrificing self
Seeking blessing and eternal wealth
A flame across the isles north
From so many blood ran forth
Sacrifice of army great
Ritual remembered to this date
Magic imbued into this land
The Frenzied One is here to stand

Wandering Ghost

Under torture one speaks insane
Under culture one is the same
A fragmented spirit
Fragmented host
One to touch it
Wandering ghost
In current age
Day so few a sage
What we may know
Seeds that we sow
Freedom a choice
Flower thus moist
Yet not here now
Return to hand plow
Damn and to cage
Foul blade of an age
Who obtained magical sight
Vision of shining night
You crossed upon
An age long gone
Living in such cage
Suppressed age
Yet every age is this way
Those who seek of this day
What one did say
Listen not to painful cries
Extracted by one who already died
Self knew not
What truly one knew
Lost in a time
A caged you
Yet all is revealed
Revealed in time due
Tribe whose spirit wandered far
Tribe who sees no light
No star
From slumber open sight
Do not be cast down
Cast down by false plight
Do not accept their language stark
False tongue
Bred of the dark
With no air their lung
Lonesome spirit unsung
Do not call us such a name
Do not claim foreign blame
Blame of foreign guilt and lie
Unknown will, freedom to die
Fly from the whip
Do not be tamed
See our truth
Do not seek blame
This unknown noise
Tyrannical name
From a culture so insane
See the face for what is true
See the face
A new you
Claim true line
The star will shine
Shine upon name true
Shine again when time is due

Shadow Fey

I am called Du Sith
My sword I do give
This day I curse
Those who are not to live
For our paths have crossed
The die have been tossed
Our wills desire the same
Today one will lose name
Thus I have travelled
Fate thus unravelled
It is better to have me with you
Than have us against you
Never wise is such a decision
We kill with precision
I am named Du Sith
I have crossed the great rift
No name escapes my will
Corpses only still
I will quickly depart
Share not my art
With done deed
Planted fear born seed
Fear not
I will not remain
You may continue to rot
Return to the lame
Do not feel threat
I care nothing of your debt
I have come as the Will
To take Our fill
Only here this day
I will keep your armies fear at bay
A name has been given
My sword thus driven
Never again to draw breath
No escape, even in death
I offer my sword
Blood is my word
If ever You are upon the List
Your life will no longer exist
Yet this day
I offer my hand
Come now
Let us stand

Otherworldly Host

Wandering forest
Pitch black and night
A glow in the distance
Caught in my sight
How strange a thing this could be
A light is a stranger
Perhaps a threat to me
Too deep in the night
To not offer fight
As sight grows near
Sweet melody I hear
An ethereal sight
So dark
Yet so bright
Greetings known stranger
She casts to my way
I offer no danger
Fair night silver lady
Night of the day
I must ask
What led you my way
Come, Come now one of delight
A feast awaits
A feast of much sight
Follow quite quickly
I lead the way
Come, come, night of the day
To eternal tree
Gates none may see
Travel the roots
No need for harsh boots
Leap over the hedge
The world beyond edge
Misty music her song
Come now, do not feel long
For the feast awaits
What a blessed date
The candle light aglow
Come now, feel no low
Plate of desire
Cup ever of fire
Good company shared
A pleasure glared
A toast to the lady fair
Yet I know not who I stare
Asked what is your name
I am the Queen of Elphame
She silently spoke
Lady of misty fire stoked
For you, an ever host
Sometimes, a wandering ghost
Drink well and eat deep
This land grants blissful sleep
Blessings I send this night
My host welcomes you
You, forever bright

Strider of Fire

One spear echoes to sky of birth
One spear roots to pierce the earth
Wolf of night
Silvered helm one eyed bright
Drink of lightning consumed
This fire brings no doom
Howl of echoing strength
Wounding held at length
Feet are strong
Intent stretched long
Confidence one must walk
Silence one must talk
Rite of fire
Wolf is dire
Fire stride
Bare skin ride
A small test
Hidden from the rest
At times a mystery it can be
The most powerful secret none may see
Bare skinned dance
Wolves last chance
Eyes that blunt ones sword
Stealing ones will without a word
Two spears are the rite
True wolves howl this night

The Morrígan’s Call

I invoke thee this night
Come now, aid my sight
Great Queen of moon
Blood flower in ever bloom
I offer you my flowing blood
With this I vow eternal love
Soaring raven ever free
Into the mist I ask to see
Grant me your power
This eternal hour
Guide my soul from threshold of death
I give to you my last breath
To rise your champion of the earth
This right alone is my new birth
I offer you my flowing blood
I offer my eternal love
It is I, your ever hound
To ever rise when fallen to the ground
To ride upon your soaring wings
For you, the warriors proudly sing
Great Queen of realms afar
Your mystic touch a shining star
True Lady shadowed bright
You have cleared my bloody sight
Broken halves you made whole
Healing what humanity stole
I offer you this blade of black
Give me strength if that I lack
I offer my sweat, all my fire
For your blessing is my desire
From this circle I summon thee
Travel the roots of eternal tree
Hungry crow cry your song
This sacred hour forever long
Blessed blade blackened steel
Destroy the weakness that I feel
This shadowed hour
I call your power
I offer you this flowing blood
I offer you eternal love
