O Forest God, may I be held in your memory.
May my true name, unknown to me, be woven
into your song. May I always be welcome
in your woods. May there always be a place
for me in your dance. May I find my way
to your secret dwelling in times of need.
May I be safe beneath the shadow of
your antlers. May I be guided by your voice
and your song. May I count tree and
vine and mushroom among my allies.
May the dove and the fox, the rabbit
and the wolf, the hawk and the deer
be my coven. May I never forget them
or you. May I remember that the earth
lives always in your dream as it was
meant to be, and may you dream that dream
for us until we are ready to dream it, too,
and make it real before our waking eyes.
