    Invocation to the Green Man of the Rowan Tree
    Hail, Green Man of the Winter! / Rowan tree of the mountains, / Slender of stalk and many of leaf, / Sacred berries that break any spell / And ward any home, / Red as the ochre of our ancestors, / Red as the food of the gods, / Brigid's pride, magical branch, / Protector of doorways, / Protector of children, / Expunger of evil, / Fire of the forge, / Floods across the plain, / Duck who rides the flood, / We hail you, sacred rowan tree, / Green Man of the Winter, / On this the time of your dreaming.
    I rise with the sap, / I feel the deep spark, / I find joy in the cold, / I bend with the winds.
    (Each comes forward and plants a seed in the pot of soil, saying, "Hail Green Man of the Earth!" Water is poured onto the pot, and then the rest is poured out as a libation. Ring bell and dismiss.)
