Cusp of the Moon III…

*

O Leader of the way

Smooth your face

Fair your form

Graceful your motion

Like a white-headed gull

On the gently swelling ocean wave.

*

I lift up my hands

And raise my eyes.

I bend my knee

And bow my head.

*

O Guiding Jewel of the night.

O Beauty of the heavens.

O Majesty of the stars.

*

Many a one has passed beyond

Over the black-river of the abyss

In the space between your two horns

But if you find me well tonight

May you leave me seven times better

And without harm.

*

May your face come through thick clouds.

May your course smooth my path.

May your light to me be fair.

*

O Bright Virgin

Of the silver-misted hair.
