Maiden, Mother & Crone

 

Round and round the circle’s cast,
Join present, future, and the past
The quarters called, the towers addressed
Invoking those, who keep us blessed
To lord and lady, a toast we hold
Midst candles silver, candles gold
Libation to the ones on high
Underneath a Diamond sky
(Chorus)
Maiden, cast your circle white
Weave a web of healing light
Mother cast your circle red
Weave the strands of family thread
Old crone cast your circle black
Weave the wisdom that we lack
Ancient mother, sacred three
Death and life, blessed be.
 
May i never hunger see
Nor never hunger come to me
With token cake and sacred wine
May drought or thirst be never mine
Release the quarters from each sphere
Depart in peace, depart from here
To lord and lady. Hail and farewell
To brethren here, we wish you well
(Chorus)
Maiden, cast your circle white
Weave a web of healing light
Mother cast your circle red
Weave the strands of family thread
Old crone cast your circle black
Weave the wisdom that we lack
Ancient mother, sacred three
Death and life, blessed be
 
Stay if you can, go if you must
With perfect love, and perfect trust
Our work is done for this night
Now we end, this sacred rite
Goddess clear and shining bright
Journey through the diamond night
All of three, yet stands alone
Maiden, mother, and the crone
