Lammas Blessings

Lughnasadh, Lammastide, First Harvest, Mandragoreae Victoria Francés

"It was upon a Lammas night
When corn rigs are bonny,
Beneath the Moon's unclouded light,
I held awhile to Annie.
The time went by with careless heed
Between the late and early;
With small persuasion she agreed
To see me through the barley.

Corn rigs and barley rigs,
And corn rigs are bonny!
I'll not forget that happy night,
Among the rigs with Annie!"

Robert Burns, 1783

"Hoof and Horn, Hoof and Horn,
All that dies shall be reborn.
Corn and Grain, Corn and Grain,
All that falls shall rise again."

Ian Corrigan
