O Love, let’s dance!
We live with hope, so never fear to fly.
Omens are a second chance.
And symbols never die.
“Jazz & Mai” by Dr. Mary Crowell, a waltz for my favorite pair of sapphic death omens. Jazz and May inhabit Seanan McGuire’s October Daye books.
Lyrics available on Bandcamp.
‘A’ is Antimagic Field and
‘B’ for Bigby’s Hands
‘C’ will charm a person, so
You’ll be in high demand…
“M is for Magic Missile,” a Dungeons & Dragons alphabet for all of us who keep forgetting that darn spell name.
Written by Dr. Mary Crowell and recorded with Michelle “Vixy” Dockrey and Jeff and Maya Bohnhoff. Lyrics are available on Bandcamp.
I seek the Witch of the Wood, Lady of Forest and Glen
Dark things howl at the gate threatening women and men.
“Witch of the Wood” by Dr. Mary Crowell, performed by Three Weird Sisters (the combined talents of Mary Crowell, Brenda Sutton, and Teresa Powell).
Lyrics available on their website.

Some believe you always die,
Age a force you can’t defy.
“Some Believe,” a weirdly beautiful song about life and undeath by Mary Crowell.
This song was composed while driving home to Mobile from
Cordele, GA in a torrential rainstorm. I had been at Robert
and Beth Cooke’s house for one of their musical get togethers,
and was generally inspired by both the weather and the musical
outpouring I experienced among my friends. (I also like mummies!)
“Some Believe,” by Doctor Mary Crowell
I, also, like the mummies.
