The flaming tongue of the sun,
Husbands the water of Spring,
In sanctifying fertile ground,
-- they lie.

Newborn, flushed green and strong,
With stony tooth and thorny hair,
Laughing with robust life
-- Earth vies.

Drawing life from fire and water,
Flora and Fauna feed.
Grapple for life and legacy,
Longing to fulfill their need.

In hurry of day and hush of night,
Whispering wiles afore men.
Life begot with touch and flight,
Of water, Earth and fire Beltaine.

With flowers and flesh they adorn
Polished limbs and lustrous skin.
Dance and laud for Earth reborn
To music sung of sky and wind.
