Two SiSters Mary Thoughts for the Day ~ September

 "Leaves fall,
the days grow cold.
The GoDDess pulls her mantle of Earth around Her
as You, O Great Sun God, sail toward the West
to the land of eternal enchantment,
wrapped in the coolness of Night.
Fruits ripen,
Seeds drip,
the hours of Day and Night are balanced."
~ Mabon Sabbat and Lore



the blackberries leave evidence of your Kiss.

 "Do you remember, the 21st Night of September?
LoVe was changing the minds of pretenders
While chasing the Clouds away
Our Hearts were ringing
In the key that our Souls were singing.
As we danced in the Night,
Remember how the Stars stole the Night away."
~ September, Earth, Wind & Fire

"Indian Summer~
the old cat shares  Her corner of the deck"
~ James Chessing

Thirty days hath September,
April, June and November;
Al the rest have thirty~one,
Save February, with twenty~eight days clear,
And twenty~nine each leap year.

 Under the Harvest moon,
When the soft silver
Drips shimmering
Over the garden Nights,
Death, the gray mocker,
Comes and whispers to You
As a Beautiful Friend
who remembers.
~ Carl Sandberg

Tangle branches of Shadowy hair
Wrinkle crisp lines
In the September air.
 Black robins bobbing,
Dig out
From summer coarsen throats
A solitary song.
~Charlotte Ballard, The Maple Dances

The Druids call this celebration, Mea'n Fo'mhair, and honor the Green Man, The god of the Forest, by offering libations to trees. Offerings of ciders, wines, herbs, and fertilizer are appropriate at this time. Mabon is considered a time of the Mysteries.       

The last of summer is Delight,
Deterred by Retrospect.
"Tis Ecstasy's revealed Review,
Enchantment's Syndicate.
To meet it ~ nameless as it is~
Without celestial mail,
Audacious as without a Knock
To walk within the Veil.
~The Last of Summer is Delight, Emily Dickinson 

Paul Émile Chabas (1869–1937)
