Midwife of Mystery, open the door,
Infant of the Infinite, come you in.

Let there be welcome to the newborn truth,
Let there be welcome to the Spring of the Year.

In cold and darkness you are traveling,
In warmth and brightness you will arrive.

May the blessed time of Imbolc
Kindle the soul of all beings,
Bringing birth to innocence and integrity
From the depths to the heights,
From the heights to the depths,
In the heart of every soul.

- Caitlin Matthews, Celtic Devotional


Oh, Brighid!
Watch over us in your motherly way
As the candles of Imbolc shine

In the melting snow
A lamb is born to the fretful Ewe
Bless her and her innocent child

From the Mother's womb
Your snakes emerge from their slumber
Your people emerge with new hope

From wheat and oat
We weave our Brideoga and crosses
To protect, to remind and bless us

Oh, Brighid!
Watch over us, this Imbolc day

- Dobhran, 1999
