& Renewal’ Carnival Parade, The

Rebirth and Renewal

Formed from nine blossoms

Nine buds of plant and tree

A goddess of spring and dawn

Heralds growth,

rebirth and renewal

And the darkness all but gone

Boldeuwedd, Brigid,

Sita and Rafu-Sen too

All spring deities that

bring life and renew

Come rejoice and join the carnival

And dance like daffodils in the sun

Plant a seed

for spring has surely sprung.
