Song for Nesret
© 2012 Natalie Baan

You rise, You rise, You shine.
You rise, You rise, You shine.
You rise, You rise, You shine.
You rise, You rise, You shine.

You kiss the sleeping earth.
You wake the land to rebirth.
You kiss the sleeping earth.
You wake the land to rebirth.

You rise, You rise, You shine.
You rise, You rise, You shine.
You rise, You rise, You shine.
You rise, You rise, You shine.


Notes: Written in February 2012 for the Procession of Nesret in the month of III Peret. Nesret means “She of the Flame”; in this case, referring to Bast. In my personal practice, this festival, along with the Feast of Heryshef at the start of the month, signals the beginning of the return of spring.
