My Lammas 2004
Sit quietly and meditate for a little while on the purpose of this Sabbat. Free all thoughts... When you feel ready to begin, please let me know…
:::walking deosil, outlining the perimeter of the Circle first with corn meal , then salted water, then sage, then sword:::
I walk this circle once around
Protection energy shall abound
I walk around this time again
Time and energy both shall bend
I walk it now thrice you see
Now tis sacred space, so mote it be!
As it is below, so it is above
this circle is now open, in perfect trust and love!
Join us here within this girth
Calling forth air, fire, water and earth
Lord and Lady of the divine
Come forth now and seal the line
Make all clean within this plot
Remove negativity any have brought
In perfect love and perfect trust
Mirrors of honor and all that is just
Seal this space around us now
Time of reaping from the plough
Protect us here as we doth vow
Paying homage to lord and frau
All things have their season.
And each one has a reason
We gather oats and hyson
With feelings wrought in frisson
First Harvest, the Wheel has turned
We reap what we have earned
We think of what we learned
And plan for what we yearn
So here now in Sacred Space
We measure not time nor place
As we look upon the face
those who give to us with grace
Lleu Llaw Gyffes of the Wales
at this time we doth all hail
The first grain cut, offered to Divine
Death and resurrection at this time
Offering dolls made out of grains
part ye now 'ward Annwn again
Unite us with our warrior skill
while on harvest fests we all shall fill
Give we thanks for all we get
be it modest or abundant
Share we now our oats and corn
with those who are of forest born
We now give thanks to the slain one
reflecting back on what we've done
We bury this offering to the slain king
and ask for safe harvest until next spring
So mote it be!
Habondia Blessed Mother Earth
Full ye be with Blessed birth
soon you will bring forth the King
and bounty to all mankind bring
Mother Goddess of the Corn
Full with child which will be born
Today we honor deity
And thank her for what she gives to me
Mother Goddess of the Grain
Rebirth is taught thru life again
Bless our harvest and bounty
And protect us, So Mote it Be!
Drink we wine and Break we bread
rebirth promised for the dead
And all fear we now will shed
As we prepare for months ahead
Thank you Father, reborn as heir
Thank you Mother for answering prayer
Thank you now for what we share
Go with peace, earth, water, fire & air
This circle now we all will close
As I lay down my pen of prose
and share we all the love that flows
Blessed Be, All now which goes…
So Mote it Be!
