Black Spirits and White, Red Spirits and Gray…

“Black Spirits and White, Red Spirits and Gray”

Black spirits and white,
Red spirits and grey,
Harken to this rhyme I say.
Four points of the Circle, weave the spell,
East, South, West, North, your tale tell.
East is for pale break of day,
South is red for noon’s fiery hour,
In the West is twilight grey,
And North is black, for the place of power.
Three times round the Circle’s cast.
Great ones, spirits from the past,
Witness it and guard it fast.

By Doreen Valiente who adapted from Shakespeare
