The Witches' Rune
by Doreen Valiente
Hearken to the witches' rune.
East and west, south and north,
Hear me now, I call ye forth.
By all powers of land and sea,
Be obedient unto me.
Wand and pentacle, cup and sword,
Waken ye unto my word.
Cord and censer, wand and knife,
Waken all ye into life.
Powers of the witch's blade,
Come now as the charge is made.
Hornéd hunter of the night,
Work my will with all your might.
By the strength of moon and sun,
As I say, it shall be done !
