	Invocation of the Lords of the Four Winds
	Lords of the four winds, rulers of the four quarters,
	come to us now; protect us in our hour of need,
	rise in the whirling plover of your mystery
	and bind the forces of darkness that deign to destroy us.
	O in the time of the bone moon,
	lift the wand, brace the air, athame black and willow wand,
	I cast the circle of our want:
	in circles three we weave the spell
	that binds and unbinds the dark and light,
	giving us right tonight to worship thee
	who art the moon's Silver Queen, Selene.
	Lords of the oceans, rivers, streams,
	rise and free the green wide earth,
	break to spell of the dark lords sway,
	so we can worship in our Old Crafting Ways.
		Invocation of the Queen of Lights
	We invoke thee Queen of Lights,
	whom the Wild Man and his Grand Dame
	on brooms of birch and willow, fly, in haste,
	to your mountain haven, under mist and moon,
	hieing round the encircled wood to hoof and horn,
	singing their wild songs and spells of sorcery and enchantment.
	So we, too, sing to thee, sweet queen of night and chaos,
	supernal mother of the living and the dead,
	crone, maiden, virgin: three form goddess of our brace:
	whose myriad forms in goddesses, earthen born,
	unfold the gleam of your hidden mystery, revealing
	in the ritual spells of this our hour, the power,
	the miracle of light and dark, the moment of desire,
	when all shall be revealed at last: the mystery and the guest;
	triune queen of time: your hour come at last, divine.
