A Man's Prayer to the Dark Moon

New Moon,
Maiden,
You are dark now.
And in the dark, who knows what mysteries are enacted?
For these are women's rites,
and I, a man, have my own mysteries.
But I revere them all, and so tonight my thoughts are turned to you.
Lady of Renewal,
renew the Earth.
Queen of Darkness, bring in the light.
Black Void, give birth to the dancing Maiden within me
and, from her,
Worlds many and wonderful.
