Live you must and let to live, fairly take, and fairly give.
For tread the Circle thrice about, to keep unwelcome spirits out.
To bind the spell well everytime, let the spell be said in rhyme.
Light of eye and soft of touch, speak you little, listen much.

Rowan is the tree power, causing life and magick to flower.

When the time for Imbloc shows, watch for flowers through the snows.
When the wheel begins to turn, soon Beltaine fires will burn.

Four times the minor Sabbats fall, use the sun to mark them all.
When the wheel has turned to Yule, light the log, the Horned one rules.
In the Spring, when night equals day, time for Ostara to come our way.
When the sun has reached its height, time for oak and Holly to fight.
Harvesting comes to one and all, when the Autumn Equinox does fall.
Heed the Flower Bush and Tree, by the Lady Blessed you'll be.
Where rippling waters go, cast a stone the truth you'll know.
When you have and hold a need, harken not to others Greed.
With a fool no season spend, or be counted as his friend.
Merry Meet and Merry Part, bright the cheeks and warm the heart.
Mind the Three-fold Laws you should, three times bad and three times good.
When misfortune is enow, wear the star upon your brow.
Be true in Love this you must do, unless your love is false to you.
These eight words the Rede fulfill:
An Ye Harm None, Do What You Will!"
