Wiccan Rede
(There seem to be a few different versions of this… I guess it is something to be expected. However I think I have a line missing in this one there is one line that does not rhyme with another… I’m not sure though)

Bide the Wiccan laws we must
In perfect love and perfect trust
Live and let live
Fairly take and fairly give
Cast the circle thrice about
To keep all evil spirits out
To bind the spell every time
Let the spell be spoken in rhyme
Soft of eye and light of touch
Speak little, listen much
Deosil go by waxing moon
Chanting out the witches’ rune
Widdershins go by waning moon
Chanting out the baneful rune
When the lady’s moon is new
Kiss the hand to her times two
When the moon rides at her peak
Then your hearts desire seek
Heed the north wind’s mighty gale
Lock the door and drop the sail
When the wind comes from the south
Love will kiss thee on the mouth
When the wind blows from the rest
Departed souls will have no rest
When the wind blows from the east
Expect the new and set the feast
Nine woods in cauldron go
Burn them fast, burn them slow
Elder be the lady’s tree
Burn in not or cursed you’ll be
When the wheel begins to turn
Let the Beltane fire burn
When the wheel has turned to Yule
Light the log and the horned ones rules
Heed ye flower, bush and tree
By the lady, blessed be
Where the rippling waters go
Cast a stone and truth you’ll know
When you have a true need
Harken not to others greed
With a fool no season spend
Least ye be counted as his friend
Merry meet and merry part
Bright the cheeks and warm the heart
Lest in self defence it be
Mind the three fold laws you should
Three times bad, three times good
When misfortune is enow
Wear a blue star on thy brow
True in love ever be
Unless thy lovers false to thee
Eight words the witches rede fulfil:
An ye harm none, do what ye will
