The Elements

Prayer to the Three

Wind, water, stone.
Breath, blood, bone.

I dwell in Nwyfre, energy, force,
I honor Nwyfre, spark and source.
Candle flame and incense rise,
Enlightened mind and brightened eyes.

Wind, water, stone.
Breath, blood, bone.

I dwell in Gwyar, movement, flow.
I honor Gwyar, change and growth.
Libations, rain and river pour,
Humming blood and soul-song sure.

Wind, water, stone.
Breath, blood, bone.

I dwell in Calas, limit, form,
I honor Calas, manifest, born.
Rock and root and herb to pledge
A healthful body and tempered edge.

Wind, water, stone.
Breath, blood, bone.
