Lyke Wake Dirge

On this night, on this night,
Every night and all,
Hearth and house and candle-light,
And Christ receive your soul.

When from here away you pass
Every night and all,
To Thorny Moor you come at last;
And Christ receive your soul.

If ever you gave hose and shoes,
Every night and all,
Sit then down and put them on;
And Christ receive your soul.

But if hose and shoes you gave none
Every night and all,
The thorns shall prick you to the bare bone;
And Christ receive your soul.

From Thorny Moor then you may pass,
Every night and all,
To Bridge of Dread you come at last;
And Christ receive your soul.

If ever you gave silver and gold,
Every night and all,
At Bridge of Dread you’ll find foothold,
And Christ receive your soul.

But if silver and gold you gave none
Every night and all:
You’ll tumble down into Hell’s flames
And Christ receive your soul.

From Bridge of Dread then you may pass,
Every night and all,
To Purgatory fire you’ll come at last;
And Christ receive your soul.

If ever you gave meat or drink,
Every night and all,
The fire will never make you shrink;
And Christ receive your soul.

But if meat or drink you gave none,
Every night and all,
The fire will burn you to the bare bone;
And Christ receive your soul.

On this night, on this night,
Every night and all,
Hearth and house and candle-light,
And Christ receive your soul.

Receive My Soul

There is Light…..

I discovered a new place today, a new place to walk.  And I fell in love all over again with my beautiful dene.  The world outside seemed to fade away and cease to exist and it was just me and Nature.  I was surrounded by this intense beauty, and I knew that this is where my journey was taking me.  I find such exquisiteness in Nature. It is so calming on the soul.  And I can think, there are no distractions as I follow this path, nothing to turn my head.  And every time I go there it is like cleansing the soul.   My only companion is my camera and through it I capture this world which is like no other.  Mysterious, full of light, and darkness, and so so powerful. Nature is such a wondrous thing.
