                                       INVOCATION OF THE MOON GODDESS 

            Diana, queen of night,
            In all your beauty bright,
            Shine on us here,
            And with your silver beam
            Unlock the gate of dream;
            Rise bright and clear.
            On earth and sky and sea,
            Your magic mystery
            Its spell shall cast,
            Wherever leaf may grow,
            Wherever tide may flow,
            Till all be past.
            O secret queen of power,
            At this enchanted hour
            We ask your boon.
            May fortune's favor fall
            Upon true witches all,
            O Lady Moon!
