in Summerland, beyond the western sea,
your soul has rested for a timeless time.
you've walked beside
the God and Goddess, free
to share communion subtle and sublime.
then something plucks
and beckons at your mind__
a call, a summons you cannot ignore.
you turn from your campanions,
and you find
a Gate where there was never one before.
Now gather up the memories and skills
you'll need in this new life that draws you through.
choose lessons, tests and goals: choose bells and frills.
they'll sleep inside, till magic wakens you.
leave Summerland behind, and pass the Gate
to Beltane's glen where loving parents wait.

(I found this quite beautiful and a nice way to think about the afterlife and how our souls get re-bored to awaiting parents.)
