A Waltz on All Souls Night

Where does one begin in describing something that touches them so passionately deep within their soul? Like a lovers sweet breath on your cheek, the earthy fragrance of two bodies intertwined, the sharing of spiritual energies.

Loreena McKennitt’s music is that for me.

“All Souls Night” by Loreena McKennitt
Bonfires dot the rolling hills

Figures dance around and around
To drums that pulse out echoes of darkness
Moving to the pagan sound.Somewhere in a hidden memory
Images float before my eyes
Of fragrant nights of straw and of bonfires
And dancing till the next sunrise.I can see lights in the distance
Trembling in the dark cloak of night
Candles and lanterns are dancing, dancing
A waltz on All Souls Night.Figures of cornstalks bend in the shadows
Held up tall as the flames leap high
The green knight holds the holly bush
To mark where the old year passes by.Bonfires dot the rolling hillsides
Figures dance around and around
To drums that pulse out echoes of darkness
And moving to the pagan sound.Standing on the bridge that crosses
The river that goes out to the sea
The wind is full of a thousand voices
They pass by the bridge and me
