A Call to the Ancestors -A Poem/Song

To blood and bone
We sing in stone
In dirt and tree and root
We pray to know
In flame and snow
The breadth of all our birth
We seek your words
In food and mirth
In story and in myth
The ways that you O Ancestors
Lived in love and frith
We seek you high
We seek you low
In Earth and Sky and Life
We seek you in the utter dark
And seek you in the light
We seek you from the Void’s old home
From Ice and Flame combined
From the Tree, Breath and Body
Our bloodlines are defined
So come to us O Sacred Ones
Dance and sing and speak
So long we’ve been without your voice
So long we have been weak
Come fill us with your blessings
Come fill us with your songs
And when we die accept us in
To join the Odal throng!
Welcome me, O Ancestors
Holy Ones New and Old
And through your guidance
Your grace, your gifts
Let the paths of wyrd unfold
