The Wiccan Rede

Bide the Wiccan laws ye must, in perfect love and perfect trust.
Live ye must and let to live, fairly take and fairly give.
For the circle thrice about, to keep unwanted spirits out.
To bind a spell everytime, let the spell be spake in rhyme.
Soft of eye and light of touch, speak ye little listen much.
Doesil go by the waxing moon, chanting out ye Witch's Rune.
When ye lady's moon is new, kiss the hand to her times two.
When ye moon rides at her peak, then ye hearts desire seek.
Heed the North wind's mighty gale, lock the door and trim the sail.
When the wind comes from the South, love will kiss thee on the mouth.
When the wind comes 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 thy Lady's tree, burn it not or cursed ye'll be.
When the wheel begin's to turn, soon ye Beltane fire's 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 ripplings waters go, cast a stone and the truth ye'll know.
When ye have and hold a need, harken not to others greed.
With a fool no season spend, or be counted as his friend.
Merry Meet and Merry Part, bright the cheeks and warm the heart.
Mind ye three fold law ye should, three times bad and three times good.
When misfortune is enow, where the star upon thy brow.
True in love may ye ever be, lest ye love be false to thee.
These eight words the Wiccan Law fulfill: "An ye harm none, do as ye will."
