Walk along with me beside
The twisted branches
By seed and root, and flower and fruit,
Dark Mother take me in

You, who knows the secrets of my heart
You kiss me softly as the mist rolls in.

I adore thee, to the end.
Speak with me under the tree
Beyond this fragile veil

I'm in the mood for sandalwood
And cloud and orange peel
You, who's blood is running through my veins
I'll never miss you on this day of wane.

I adore thee,
To the end.

The night has called us
He rides into the marshes
May you guide us and protect us
The time of death is here.

Summer's ending,
Shadows lengthen
Black bird,
Come home.

Leaves are falling around us
Winter is upon us
We shall survive these
Fears of reconciling.

The night has called us
He rides into the marshes
May you guide us and protect us
The time of death is here.

The night has called us
He rides into the marshes
May you guide us and protect us
It turns again, the Wheel of the Year.
