the bright, exalted one
golden sparkling flame
who brings increase after winter, emerging from the hill
a serpent on the eve of spring,
and who causes milk to flow.
Brígid endows holy wells
with healing virtues, and
her breath revives the dead.
Brígid inspires gifts in poetry, healing, and smithcraft.
Scottish chants praised her
powers "over fire, over art,
over all beauty beneath the sky
and beneath the sea."
