On this moon I made my vow to you.
Now its magic is changing all things.
Old mother universe is revealing
Her strange secrets before the dawn moon.
From the unfathomed depths of Annwn
Awen sings its immutable chant
In clear light with its heart-stopping tune.
Through enchantment dark lands are imbued
With legends danced from the world’s beginning.
To sustain their paths of timeless singing
Let my vow by this moon be renewed.
*The name ‘old mother universe’ is borrowed from fellow Preston based poet Nicolas Guy Williams whose poetry and novel excerpts can be found on his blog: http://nicolasguywilliams.wordpress.com/
