I am the witching hour of night,
The endless stars in the onyx sky,
And the dark side of the moon,
I bring meaning to the light.
I am Autumn and Winter,
The blanket of snow on a dreaming earth,
The seeds that lay dormant in the ground,
I bring renewal to the Spring.
I am an age-old song,
The sweet melody that is heard on the wind,
The flute that whispers gently each morning,
I bring a story to be sung.
I am the trickster,
The thief who stole light,
The accidental creator of life,
I bring gifts with my deceptions.
I am the scavenger,
The taker of what is wasted by others,
The keeper of treasures recycled,
I bring purity to muck.
I am the transformer,
The creativity of every artist,
I am magic incarnate,
I bring imagination to this world.
