Birth Journey – Blessingway Magic
Let me take you on a journey, sisters, travel with me now.
A journey for my birthing, of where and who and how.
Imagine if you will now, a lovely valley not far from here,
A little way upstream on this canal, do you want to lock or steer?
For we shall take our boat this way, a week or two from now
And I shall take the tiller, and you can stand upon the bow
For bridges are too much for me and winding locks is out
As at nearly 9 months pregnant, I am really far too stout.
So in summer sun, I hope at least, we'll wind our merry way
To the place where I shall birth my babe on his or her birthday.
And so the place that I have picked to bring you to my breast
Is a place of power and nature, a place to stop and rest.
On one side of the valley, the river winds it's course
Twisting like a serpent, an untamed waterforce.
And when I first feel labour start, to you I'll make my way,
To swim and meet the Goddess of this flowing waterway,
