Earthwizard's Realms of Faërie

Remember the night, moon, and sea...

	Lest we forget who we are...

	Lest we forget who we are
	rise up and touch the moon:
	dance deosil round that light
	that is our blessed power, 
	the sister of the mirage
	and echo, queen of wild things:
	trust her as she gathers us under her circle
	and shapes us to her desires:
	we have always known her supremacy,
	but were till now afraid to act on it;
	but now, in the hour of our waking
	we begin to know by movement: dancing,
	chanting, and touching each the other's mystery
	in the bracing way of our Lord and Lady.
	For we are the Children of the Moon,
	the broken dreamers of oblivion
	who have roamed this wild earth
	through all time and shaping and light:
	knowing that we are known by visions of love.
	And, even now, we begin to see
	through the black veil into that realm
	where beauty haunts the ancient woods
	where the true image of all magick resides:
	where the dragon and the unicorn
	mate their twined spirits of purity and fire
	under the blessed stars of the goddess.
	So rise up and circle round and round
	the magick ring of light and mystery,
	for tonight we celebrate the ritual empowerment
	of the Old Religion of the Earth:
	gather hand in hand and jump the flames,
	and dance to the music of wild desires;
	play flute, harp, and drum to her rhythmn
	and raise high the ivied thyrsis to her mystery;
	then circle round and round the willow grove 
	laughing merrily among the pagan deities of this green earth,
	and know that you are known
	by the deep mystery of this bright universe.
