I think I hear you,
O dark moon goddess,
enchantress; cauldron keeper.
I think I hear you call my name.
The lake stirs with my restless mind
and I ask you, please
teach me your wiles, goddess.
Teach me to be fluid, to shapeshift.
Show me how to change with the seasons.
Remind me of my chameleon ways;
remind me of my power.
share your knowledge with me.
Tell me how you number the stars,
tell me how you know.
Oh, great mother, I can see another ending
in the tangerine sunset.
Your dark moon rises full,
and sinks with the persimmon sunrise.
You are the raindrops cleansing my skin,
again I begin,
I think I hear you calling my name.

Cerridwen is a goddess in Welsh mythology. She is incredibly powerful; a fierce protector and a fearsome enemy. As the goddess of knowledge, she possesses wisdom and the power of prophecy. She is often linked closely to the moon. A shapeshifter, she is capable of transformation and urges you to do the same. She reminds us of cycles, of seasons, of rebirth. When Cerridwen calls your name, it’s time for change.
