Here is an Irish blessing, spoken in our circle last night as we celebrated First Light and remembered the Celtic Brigid, goddess of inspiration, poetry and healing:

When the first light of sun —
Bless you
When the long day is done —
Bless you
In your smiles and your tears —
Bless you
Through each day of your years —
Bless you
Blessings to you all, wherever you are, and in whatever season.
