Feast of the Equinox Eclipse

Archdruid: Welcome, watchers of the skies!

All: Ooooooh!

Archdruid: All winter we've been hanging on in quiet desperation

All: In the English way.

Archdruid: The Equinox is upon us!  The Sun crosses the equator, bringing fun, fun, fun.

All: Mr Blue Sky is living here today,  hey hey.

Archdruid: But just as he crosses the half-way line, he will be taken out by the moon.

All: Like Martin Skrtel body-checking a striker who's been played through.

Archdruid: And behold - Hnaef climbs upon the Tightrope of Equinoctial Balance.

All: To plunge into the darkness of the duck pond

Archdruid: the Sun plunges into the Void

All: The Void

Archdruid: The Void

All.... of Darkness

Moon Gibbon: As it is eaten by the Moon Gibbon!

Moon Gibbon Folk Run Screaming into the woods

Hymn: Equinox (Jarre)

Final Blessing

All that is now
All that is gone
All that's to come
and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

Archdruid: There is no dark side of the moon really.

All: Matter of fact it's all dark


  1. Hymn: The sun has got his hat on and it's slipped over his eyes (arr. Inwood).

  2. have you seen the BBC's picture of England today? It appears to depict the Moon Gibbons watching the eclipse

  3. Eclipse are things that hold Arch Druid's robes together - Right?
