Spellcasting


Picture by Anne Stokes

Poem by Anita Magdalena....

Spellcasting.

Wilweorthunga Licwiglunga Galdra and Hwata
witches spellcasting precise in this matter 
A happening a knowing of some that are near
if you are close there is nothing to fear.

To find Frithspottum cast out the undesired
It's not such a task for a soul that is fired
There is a darkness inside every fold
of an unknowing nature with much yet untold

Be as you are or be as you will
there is a Galdra to make you stand still
If you feel funny if you feel strange
maybe your abominations are way out of range

Wilweorthunga Licwiglunga Galdra and Hwata
witches spellcasting precise in this matter
A happening a knowing of some that are near
if you are close there is nothing to fear.

  10. Quite interesting and unusual, and very spell-like. Enjoyed your foray into Old English and witchery in general.

  11. Thank you Hedgewitch, much appreciated. The poem came from somewhere within, without me trying. I do practice the craft as a Trad Witch. :0]
