Mall go n-ardóidh

Somewhere, out at the edges, the night

Is turning and the waves of darkness

Begin the brighten the shore of of Dawn.

The heavy dark falls back to earth

And the freed air goes wild with light

The heart fills with fresh, bright, breath

And thoughts stir, to give birth

to colour.

I arise today

Womb of the word

In the name of stillness

Home of belonging

In the name of the Soul and Earth.

I arise today.

( Martins . In O’Donohue. D ( (1998) Eternal Echoes. Bantam Press. GB.)

To the waters and the wild

With a fairy hand in hand

For the world is more full of weeping than you can understand

( Yeats, The Stolen Child)

Mall go n-ardóidh forms part of an ongoing reseach process: (Earth Dance: Environmental Dance scholarship)
