Song for a Beautiful Festival
© 2011 Natalie Baan

Splendid in Their coming,
Splendid in Their going,
beautiful the day —
Behold the Gods in festival!
Flowers in our hands,
flowers on the altars,
garlands for the Gods —
Breathe in their living perfume!
Music in our hearts,
music in our voices,
rising to the sky —
Now dance for all the Netjeru!
Splendid in Their coming,
Splendid in Their going,
beautiful the day —
Behold the Gods in festival!
Beautiful the day —
the Gods are all in festival!


Notes: Written in October 2010.
