Spring Equinox Prayer to the Dawn

With fallen fetters, in red-robed splendor,
stream forth, Dawn Maiden, return the herds.
Come to us, Dawn, as cow, not as mare.
Disperse the fog the serpent leaves behind.
Come to us, Dawn, as cow, not as mare.
With your maidens about you, open the gate.
Come to us, Dawn, as cow, not as mare.
Do not block the gate; may the sun's path be free.
Come to us, Dawn, as cow, not as mare,
opening the mountain's mouth,
pouring forth the white streaming water.
Maiden, Dawn, open the way
for the sun to rise and light the earth.
Stream forth, dawn's light.
Do not hold the sun back, Dawn.
Open your cloak and let her rise;
let her rise,
attended by her maidens.
Let her rise, and illumine the world.
