Then in darkness, when the men have been allowed to creep into the room, a small figure in a dark cloak arrives. Wreathed in ivy and warmly wrapped, a young maid from the community brings in the first flowers and the new flame. Under her cloak, which one of the older ladies removes, she is dressed in white and green, and carries a dish of early flowers, snowdrops, violets, jasmine or the earliest daffodils.

Once all is again gathered in, the flocks sorted out, and the first winter frosts whiten the ground, the old feast of Hallowe'en comes round again. It is traditionally a time of disguises, games of chance and those which foretell the future with apple peel or by candle light, in dark mirrors. The Goddess is seen here in her wisdom aspect, and it is a time of consulting the First Parents, inviting them to the Great Feast, telling them of the births and deaths, hopes and fears of the year, in the times of speech and of silence.
Relax with your eyes closed and stretch your senses. Here are a selection of books to look out for: Robert Graves, The White Goddess (Faber) Marian Green, A Harvest of Festivals (Longman, out of print) Marian Green, Natural Witchcraft (Thorsons) Miranda Green, The Gods of the Celts (Alan Sutton) William James, Varieties of Religious Experience (Penguin) Caitlin Matthews, The Elements of the Goddess (Element Books) Don't expect any of these books to be a very easy read, nor do any of them explain exactly about the Old Village Witch or Cunning Man because there is very little written about them, except as parts of learned studies by folklorists, but they are a treasure house of useful ideas.
