MEÁN-FÓMHAIR
(An Irish-Tuatha de Danann-Fall Equinox-Ballad)
*MEÁN-FÓMHAIR*

Fey Queen Morrighu of Ancient Might:
She has one foot in the light 
& the other in the dark of night.
To fear her not, yet respect her true
is to walk well-guarded between the two.

When day & night are of equal might
MEÁN-FÓMHAIR dances betwixt dark & light.
And shall we celebrate Grian-while we're free,
`the sun and a fairy queen' of Tipperary?

The best of our Autumn Feast...
We leave out one of each-flower & treat- 
with no blights in sight- 
by twilight's passing lights,
for Fey & Elementals & Nature-folk bright,
who all summer long did love us so right,
& did bless our gardens with sweet delights.

Dear Butterflies-we say good-bye,
so take your leave-till next May Eve,
Then come again in your magic cocoon-
to return to us next Midsummer Noon.
When your silken wings once more flit &  fly,
We will dance with Áine on those Midsummer Nights.
At Telltainne we began bidding you adieu,
off you went with our shining Lugh.
Now Autumn is falling & we've seen the last of you,
till next "year go `round" when you return anew, 
for our bright sunny days-& our shiny Faery-Moons.

But when day & night are of equal might,
MEÁN-FÓMHAIR dances betwixt dark & light.
Good-bye green leaves, don't put up a fight.
For the seasons must turn, on the wheel of life.

Traversing freely by Land, Sea & Sky
We prepare to welcome the Morrighu, nigh-
with her Faery Shadows-of Twilight passing by.

Now place a Diadem on my shining head,
I've embroidered your garments with gold & red
& each stitch is sown with a real gold thread.
Come join the feast, come join the play,
for tonight we'll welcome a wild haired Fey.

The clurichaun is busy & the wine tisn't gone,
There's plenty to last the whole day long.
Come join our Feast & drink our Mead,
We welcome a Queen on a Faery-Steed.

These three Branch-Wands Dánu brings to me,
of Hawthorne, of Hazel & of Apple-Tree.
For Faery protection, for filidh poetry 
& last but not least, for immortality. 
..For tonight we welcome some wild Sidhe...

*Go maire tú!* ....
And a  Harp, with three strains she'll give to you, 
so we'll cry, then laugh, then sleep when we're through. 
*Mo cheol thu! ...Go maire tú!*

So, let's sing & prance & make merry all day,
for tonight we'll dance with the likes of the Fey.
For now we prepare to bid the Morrighu, nigh
with her Faery Shadows-of Twilight passing by.

As we paint our skin with glasen dye,
this woad sinks in, till I'm bluer than the sky.
Now a faery tattoo in a secret place,
& upon my arm is a catti-tribe face.
We pictured people-`neath our bright glowing moon,
shall welcome thee, Morrighu-with sweet Sidhe tunes
& our indigo faces ...shining bravely back at you..
 

Mysterious Morrighu of Ancient Might:
With one foot in the light 
& the other in the dark of night.
We fear her not, yet respect her true
so we walk right happily between the two.

Traversing freely by Land, Sea & Sky
Here's to Queen Morrighu, her intuition & insight,
With her one foot in the dark & her one foot in the light.

Fall Equinox usually around
Around September 22nd or 23rd,
(check your calendar for the
exact time each year).
A Special Time when Night & Day
are of Equal Length.

~*_*~
Danu, 
the Great Faery Queen Mother.
She is guardian of
the Otherworld.
She is protector & healer.

Watch our Forest Father,
the Fae's Greenman
as he cloaks himself from Green into the reds, oranges, yellows & brilliant colours of our Feyfolk Fall.

At the Autumn Equinox.
Now the Sun's Light
diminishes,
until it is "reborn" at
Winter Solstice

Likewise, Gréine's light
has now been drawn into
mother earth like a seed,
in her Otherworld,
gathering, nurturing & wisdom
enough to be re-appear to us anew.

It is an enchanting place,
yet nurturing place to grow
strong again, ;o)

For Gréine must get ready to go shine brightly for the other side of the Earth & give them their turn of Bright Sunny weather.

Gréine, Brightly  Lighting a trail
for the Cosmic Balance
of the Changing Seasons.

Ré looks lovely in the night skies
this time of year too!



 
 


 
Autumn Equinox
is also the time to celebrate
The Harvest Home.
We decorate with the bright
colours of the changing
autumn leaves;
brilliant burnt oranges,
flaming reds & golds.
We make autumn coloured
wreaths for our heads.


Then We all circle around
and holding hands
we dance a Faekith Dance
as the wild Autumn Breeezes
  blow freely through our hair.

Then we go on an acorn hunt
and to capture the season's last
"faery runes", before the snow.
 

We prepare a Harvest Feast
for family & friends.
Faery Wine,
Corn & Apple Sauce
& ripe red Apples
for each one.

It is a time of both
Merry Meet & Farewells,
a time of joys & sorrows,
of comings & of goings &
  May We Merry Meet Agains'.
