    Carmentalia Invocation
    All things grow in the dark place / Safe within the womb of the Mother, / Safe within the dream of the Mother. / The Earth lies now asleep / Full with big belly, / Each seed pregnant with hopes / Waiting for the return of the Sun. / So we are each of us, / Pregnant with hopes and dreams, / Big-bellied in our minds, / Waiting to for the moment / To begin our sacred labor. / This is the time of waiting, / Feeling the child within come to fruition, / Feeling it grow and change, / Feeling the faint motions / That signify the oncoming flood of life.
    Call: May Life burst forth in a flood of joy!
    Response: May Life come forth through the gate of eternity!
    Call: We hail the Mother beneath our feet!
    Response: We hail the Mother within our souls!
    Call: We hail the Mothers from whence we descended!
    Response: We hail the Mothers that are yet to bring forth!
    Call: We hail the growth of possibility!
    Response: We hail all that it yet to come!
    Call: We hail the growth of the future!
    Response: We wait for the birthing-time with open arms!
    Chant: Mother I feel you under my feet / Mother I hear your heart beat
