Lammas Invocation

The King and Queen are wed at last
While summer’s kiss turns fields and grass
To harvest gold, and garden gifts
Find sacrifice on earthen lips.

Witches gather hand to hand
Power raised along the bad.
Vortex spiral in its quest
Force to form I manifest!

Debts repaid and games of sport,
Weather magick — Thor’s retort
Blessing babies, baking bread
Stocking up for winter’s stead.

Witches gather hand to hand
Power raised along the bad.
Vortex spiral in its quest
Force to form I manifest!

Bonfires, dancing, circle round
Fruits and produce from the ground
Offer up a feast of praise
Whole shadows lengthen in the maze.

Witches gather hand to hand
Power raised along the bad.
Vortex spiral in its quest
Force to form I manifest!

August sun turns all to bronze
Golden children singing songs
Fireflies flitter in the dusk
Touching all with faery dust.

Witches gather hand to hand
Power raised along the bad.
Vortex spiral in its quest
Force to form I manifest!

Dark Lord melts into the night
Taking with Him summer’s light
Merging wishes, law, and might
Removing evil from our sight.

Witches gather hand to hand
Power raised along the bad.
Vortex spiral in its quest
Force to form I manifest!
