Patreon Song/Poem/Prayer 19 -For the Pre-Iron Age Ancestors

If you want to submit a request for a prayer, poem, or song to be written to you privately or to be posted on this blog or my Patreon for a God, Ancestor, or spirit, sign up for the Ansuz and above level here on my Patreon. This prayer was requested from Elfwort for the Pre-Iron Age Ancestors.

Standing stones marked by the work of your hands

Pieces of pottery, pieces of your lives

Bones and furs and metal

If I listen I can hear you

The drum pounding from centuries on centuries

The clack of wood on wood

The strain of sinew

I can see you

The dance around fires and trees and poles

The feasting around tables and benches

The kneeling, prostrating, genuflection before the holy places

I can smell you

The wood smoke of cooking and heating

The fresh rains on well-tilled earth

The sacred herbs burning

I can feel you

The embrace of countless hands

The support on my back, my soles, my shoulders, my head

The presence as we stand together

I can taste you

The plentiful foods that you have passed down

The bread, vegetables, and flesh prepared in your way

The drinks I have tasted, made by your guidance

I can sense you

The guidance you give me

The fierce love and protection your surround me in

The thousands of Beings who know me

Animals, plants, you knew them well

Stones and bones with which to craft, to fight

Waters and ways you knew by heart and head

You reach to me and you are here

Old Ancestors

I hail You!
