We have a resource list posted in the Cauldron Cill SIG (http://www.ecauldron.net/forum/index.php?topic=401.0).  It lists many books about Brighid (who is closely associated with Imbolc), as well as several websites.

Here are some sites (from that list) that might be helpful for Imbolc rituals and poetry:

You're very welcome.

Please remember to quote when you post, as I've done here.  Our rules require quoting so the linkback code appears.

Thanks.

Thanks to all & blessed be.

Last year I ran an Imbolc ritual for my college's Pagan group, and I'd be more than happy to share some of what I wrote.

To invite Brighid:
This is Brighid’s day
These are the children of Brighid.
We honor the goddess of fire, creation, healing
May she find joy in this celebration
And grant us her wisdom and favor.
Hail Brighid!
Any others who would join us, come
We bid you bless and consecrate our rite.


To thank her for her presence:
Brighid the poet
Brighid the healer
Brighid the crafter of all things new
We give thanks to your presence
And praise to your name.
Would you depart, may it be in peace.

Thank you! Smiley I haven't worked with Brighid since that ritual, but I'd like to think she approved.
