Hallows Everyday 2

(vintage post card)

Besom, besom, Lady's broom,
Sweep out darkness, sweep out doom,
Rid ye Lady's hallowed ground
Of demons, imps, and Hell's red hound;
Then set ye down on Her green Earth
By running stream or Mistress' hearth,
'Til called once more on moon or Sabbath night
To cleanse once more the dancing site!

Blessings nine!


  1. Interesting. A slightly different (and better rhyming/ counting) version of this is in my Book of Shadows. I got it in ... oh, 1989 or so, and it was old and well known at that time. I believe it was written in southern Ontario in the 60s. :)

  2. This is charming....literally and I love it. Thanks for sharing. Oma Linda

  3. Thanks, Allyson. I've seen variations of this over many years. I collect them. XO
