All Souls Night

Bonfires dot the rolling hillsides.
Figures dance around and around
to drums that pulse out echoes of darkness;
moving to the pagan sound.
 
Somewhere in a hidden memory
images float before my eyes
of fragrant nights of straw and of bonfires,
dancing till the next sunrise.
 
I can see the lights in the distance
trembling in the dark cloak of night.
Candles and lanterns are dancing, dancing
a waltz on all souls night.
 
Figures of cornstalks bend in the shadows
held up tall as the flames leap high.
The Green Knight holds the holly bush
to mark where the old year passes by.
 
I can see the lights in the distance
trembling in the dark cloak of night.
Candles and lanterns are dancing, dancing
a waltz on all souls night.
 
Bonfires dot the rolling hillsides.
Figures dance around and around
to drums that pulse out echoes of darkness;
moving to the pagan sound.
 
Standing on the bridge that crosses
the river that goes out to the sea.
The wind is full of a thousand voices;
they pass by the bridge and me.
 
I can see the lights in the distance
trembling in the dark cloak of night.
Candles and lanterns are dancing, dancing
a waltz on all souls night.

With the night of Samain it begins the winter, a night of passage in which the dead return to earth, a night when the dead dance with the living in the shadows of the bonfires on the hills.
“All Soul Night” was composed and recorded in one of the first albums by the Canadian artist Loreena McKennitt (“The Visit” 1991) but often repeated in her live concerts, in the song she evokes a scene from the festival of “mummies” “, that is, the masks. Mummers were disguised men who wore masks and went to visit their neighbors at home, singing and dancing, a solstice custom that recalls certain Celtic traditions of Samain. The mumming also implies a sort of “sacred representation”, focused on the rite of death-rebirth of many solstice traditions and New Year’s Eve.
