Eye of the Aeon

Here is a beautiful song/poem for Mabon, which is at the time of the Autumnal Equinox. I learned it from a group of people in Glastenbury, England many years ago. I don’t know who the author is. It is in the tradition of old bardic poetry, like Merlin used, where the sounds and patterns have magical energy in addition to the words. So, say it, repeat it, wonder about it.

The Eye of the Aeon

I am the Mabon
I am the child
I am Yr,
The Golden Bough.
I am the Dart
That the Yew lets fly,
Three pure Rays
The Pillars of Life.
I am the Wren
The King of Birds
I am Bard
And Teller of Lies
I am the Song
Within the Heart.
I am the Light
That will never die.
I am Stars
Within the Void.
I am the Eye of the Aeon.
