Bide the Wiccan laws ye must
in perfect love an' perfect trust.
Live an' let live
fairly take an' fairly give.
For the circle thrice about,
To keep unwelcome spirits out.
To bind ye spell well everytime,
Let the spell be spake in rhyme.
Sort of eye an' light of touch,
speak but little listen much.
Deosil go by the waxing moon,
chanting out ye baleful tune.
When the Lady's moon is new,
kiss ye hand to her times two.
When ye moon rises at her peak,
then ye heart's desire seek.
Heed the Northwind's mighty gale,
lock the door and trim the sail.
When the wind comes form the South,
love will kiss thee on the mouth.
When the wind blows from the East,
expect the new and set the feast.
Nine woods in the cauldron go,
burn them fast and burn them slow.
Elder be the Lady's tree,
burn it not, or cursed ye'll be.
When the Wheel begins to turn,
soon ye Beltane fires will burn.
When the Wheel hath turned a Yule,
light the log the Horned One rules.
Heed ye flower, bush, and tree.
by the Lady blessed be.
Where the rippling waters go,
cast a stone, truth ye'll know.
When ye have and hold a need,
harken not to other's greed.
With a fool no season spend,
or be counted as his friend.
Merry meet an' Merry part,
bright the cheeks an' warm the heart.
Mind the Threefold Law ye should,
three times bad an' three times good.
When misfortune is enow,
were the star upon thy brow.
True in love may ye ever be,
lest thy love false to thee.
These eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill;
An' harm ye none, do what ye will.
