EbonyDoe: “Birds circle hungrily overhead
As through harvested fields we tread.
The smokehouse fires and burning leaves
Their scents do spiral and interweave.
Ripples circle in our wake
As rice we harvest from a lake.
The dusty Earth now shorn of locks
Swirls as pass our fattened flocks.
Much bounty may our harvest see
As we cast, so mote it be!”

High Priest: “We call upon the Lord of the harvest, sacred King,
giver of riches and protection since before time began.
Bestow upon us your strength and laughter, power and prosperity,
We do ask.”

EbonyDoe: “We call upon the blessed Lady, queen of the harvest,
giver of life and plenty since before time began.
Bestow upon us your joy and beauty,
power and prosperity, we do ask.”

Stag: “Leaves fall, the days grow cold.
The Goddess pulls Her mantle of the Earth around Her as You,
O Great Sun God, sail toward the West to the lands of Eternal Enchantment, wrapped in the coolness of night.
Fruits ripen, seeds drop, the hours of day and night are balanced.
Chill winds blow in from the North wailing laments.
In this seeming extinction of nature's power,
O Blessed Goddess,
I know that life continues.
For spring is impossible without the second harvest, as surely as life is impossible without death.
Blessings upon You, O Fallen God, as You journey into the lands of winter and into the Goddess' loving arms.”

Guardian of the East: “We thank you East!
We thank you, Spirits of Air
For your presence here tonight.
Walk with us always
As you dance the cycles of life.
Blessed Be!”

Guardian of the South: “We thank you South!
We thank you, Spirits of Fire
For your presence here tonight.
Walk with us always
As you dance the cycles of life.
Blessed Be!”

Guardian of the West: “We thank you West!
We thank you, Spirits of Water
For your presence here tonight.
Walk with us always
As you dance the cycles of life.
Blessed Be!”

Guardian of the North: “We thank you North!
We thank you, Spirits of Earth
For your presence here tonight.
Walk with us always
As you dance the cycles of life.
Blessed Be!”
