Cerridwen of Celtic Lore

Silver light of the moon,

Goddess that I seek

I reach my arms out to you

When things are cold and bleak.


Crone Goddess so wise

Give me inspiration to carry on

So that I may rise

Through this night into the dawn.


Cerridwen of Celtic lore

Help me to be reborn into a new light

So that I may soar

Through the darkness like the moon so bright.


Inspire, rejuvenate and transform me

Into all that I can be

Just to make it through this life

Oh Goddess of the Moon So bright.


Cerridwen you are both mother and crone

You know of my worries, of my pain

Aid me with the wisdom of the unknown

Transform me by every grain


So that come tomorrow

I may give my thanks to the Goddess of the Moon

Again for aiding in my sorrow

Bringing forth a light into my life

Like you offer the night.

Note

For those who are not familiar with my beliefs I am considered a Christo-Pagan. I connect to Sophia and the Christian God as well as Yeshua the most. However like any other Pagan I do like to work with other Gods and Goddesses from time to time and Cerridwen is one of them. She is one that actually was the first one I ever came to when I fell upon the Pagan path, when I was purely Pagan.

This poem is to the Celtic Goddess Cerridwen who is of the Welsh origin. Some look at her as just being a Crone Goddess while some look at her as a Mother/Crone Goddess. In either case she is connected to the moon, mostly to the full moon.

You're welcome Raciniwa. Glad you found it to be refreshing. :) Greek and Romans are the well known ones not many do know about the Celtics. I however have been very interested in them lately so have been doing quite a bit of research. Thank you for reading.
