Invocations to Grian and Lugh

Celtic languages have regional accents and dialects which are often difficult for non-native speakers to reproduce. With a California accent you won't go too far wrong saying Greean and Lou Lauvetha Illdaynah. (US) Southerners should try to make the words shorter than feels natural. Midwesterners should try to keep the sound soft rather than crisp, and sound a little like you have a stuffy nose. Scholars who disagree with me can send me email at the addy below.

Grian, Lady Sun,
Gaze down on us with Your Burning Eyes.
Your Face we dare not look upon,
Your Flaming Hair streams down
To warm our fields and ripen our grain.
Be with us!

We feel Your Heat in our blood,
Your Love on our skin.
It is by Your light that we can see
The colors of the world.

Join us as we celebrate You.
Accept our offerings of fruit and honey,
Laughter, dance and kisses.
We thank You for Your Presence.
Be here now!

Lugh Lamhfada Ioldanach
Steady-handed God of Light
Master of All Arts:
Carpenter, Bronze and Iron Smith,
Warrior Cupbearer and Physician,
Chessmaster, Poet and Sorcerer
Be with us!

We gaze upon the creamy stars
And se Your Chain across the sky.
Bring us Your Brilliance
Of Spirit, Mind and Skill.

Join us as we celebrate You.
Accept our offerings of grain and ale,
Games, poetry and song.
We thank You for Your Presence.
Be here now!
