A health to the mothers of the merry begotten
A health to the maiden with the fiery eyes
A health to the crone that smiles beside us
On the other side of a Beltane fire
A health to the sweet rain gently falling
Down upon the Earth so fair
A health to the wind that gales around us
And feeds the passion of a Beltane fire
A health to the lovely green-eyed Susan
She whose heart is my desire
And after all the May Pole’s rising…
Will you leap with me now o’er a Beltane fire?
Alternate verse
A health to the acts of love and pleasure
A health to the way the May poles rise
A health to those who bear no children
So those who do come along survive!
Eo! The maiden and the horned one
Eo! The call to spill the seed
Eo! The stirring of the cauldron
Eo Evohe!
Eo! The Green Man ever present
Eo! The raven in the wood
Eo! The kisses ripe for tasting
Eo Evohe!
Eo! The rising of the sleepers
Eo! To hear the pipe at dawn
Eo! The quickening is here
Eo Evohe!
Eo! The sweet rain gently falling
Eo! The seed deep in the Earth
Eo! I hear my lovers calling
Eo Evohe!
Eo! The lusty summer coming
Eo! The green leaf in the bud
Eo! The wild sap is running
Eo Evohe!
Eo! The musky Piper playing
Eo! The One Who Calls the Dance
Eo! The howling earth is saying
Eo Evohe!
