A Longevity Ritual!
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
Even, smooth, and slender the fingers of
Clotho twirl each thread of life. Her eyes guide
Her work, to make it fit for Lachesis
To measure, while Atropos determines
The set way of destiny. Let's pretend,
In the Circle of Ritual, to be
These three sisters, and faithfully transcend
The material limits, to extend
The possible lifespans of those we love!
In enchanting coordination of
Eyes and fingers, could we change destiny?
I believe so, and what but faith applied
Is magic? May the ritual begin
With these rhyming and beating fifteen lines,
Cutting the cingulum, Longevity!
Author's Notes: This might be a prescription for a Circle Ritual for making a cingulum, Longevity, for someone beautiful enough to warrant it. Four people could be inside the Circle. The ritual could start as that of making a cingulum through the first person holding the three cords and the second, in the spirit of Clotho, intertwining them and chanting. A third person, in the spirit of Lachesis, could measure it (especially long of course!) , and a fourth person, in the spirit of Atropos, could cut it. Then, if the person of honor is present, the cingulum Longevity could be presented, with the blessings of all participants, to the esteemed recipient.
