Candlemas Circle: A few rhymes and songs

,

An echo game:

Will you be my shadow?
Yes, I’ll be your shadow.

Come, let’s have some fun.
Come, let’s have some fun.

Turn around, turn around.
Turn around, turn around.

Stamp your feet; clap your hands.
Stamp your feet; clap your hands.

Bend down low, find a sack.
Bend down low, find a sack.

Empty, empty, just like that.
Empty, empty, just like that.

Blow it up and pop the sack!
Blow it up and pop the sack!

I’m a Little Candle (tune: I’m a Little Teapot)
Start out standing tall and slowly melt.

I’m a little candle, shining bright.
Here is my flame that gives the light.
When I finally burn out, you will see,
There will be nothing left of me!

Candle Glow (tune: The Muffin Man)

Do you see the candle’s glow,
The candle’s glow, the candle’s glow?
Do you see the candle’s glow?
It’s such a pretty sight!

Groundhog Day

February second is Groundhog Day.
Will he see his shadow?
What will he say?
If he says, “More snow!”
If he says, “More cold!”
Then back into his hole he will surely go!

Candle, Candle (from Seven Times the Sun)

Candle, candle, burning bright,
Fill us with your holy light.
May the flame of joy and love
Glow now in our hearts.

    Dear Annette,
    I had not realised I had not followed you on this new site. Still am on the old one.
    Would love it if you had a look at my Candlemas post too.
    I love your verse for this one.
    Not sure if you follow me or not I thought you did but you seem to be missing now.
    I hope this wasn’t anything I did
    I am seriously looking at your little guides to buy just need to get the $$ together.
    Blessings

      I’m definitely still following you. I’ll admit I’m a bit jealous of all you’re able to do. I had some pretty major health issues when the twins were born and am still not doing great. I was actually thinking of emailing you to ask for your prayers, but I didn’t want to be presumptions. I’m so glad to hear from you!
