For the earth, for us…

At Tara in this fateful hour,

 

I place all Heaven with its power,

 

And the sun with its brightness,

 

And the snow with its whiteness,

 

And the fire with all the strength it hath,

 

And the lightning with its rapid wrath,

 

And the wind with its swiftness along its path,

 

And the sea with its deepness,

 

And the rocks with their steepness,

 

And the Earth with its starkness,

 

All these I place

 

By Source’s almighty help and grace

 

Between Gaia and the powers of darkness


This is from a magical book: A Swiftly Tilting Planet a novel by Madeleine L’Engle. She adapted St. Patrick’s Rune, or the “fáeth fiada a hainm” – translating to the ‘Deer’s Cry’.
