Witchy Words A Solitary's Rede
*Deosil or Widdershins, In this place I do begin.
The path is clear, No end is near,
The journey best, At friend's behest.
Solitary must share lore, That others, too, may come to fore.
Lest blindly led, And singly fed,
She stumble thrice, Once plus twice.
(found at Phantasmagoria)

Man is free at the moment he wishes to be.
Bide the Wiccan Law ye must;
In perfect love, In perfect trust.
Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill:
An ye harm none, do as ye will.
And ever mind the rule of three:
What ye send out comes back to thee.
Follow this with mind and heart,
And merry ye meet, and merry ye part.
