    Hestia Invocation
    Flame of the Hearth / Keeper of the Inner Circle / Faceless One / Eldest of the Olympians / Lady of the Pantry / Whose open hands dispense hospitality / Chimney and cooking fire / Lady of routine and dailiness / To miss your quiet strength / In the rush of our sudden lives / Would be as great a disservice / As forgetting the air we breathe. / You who are the comforting hearth where we began / And the inner warmth that we will come home to, / Make this place a home for all of us. / Make this hearth a home of the every day, / The ordinary morning and noon, / The expected evening and the consoling night. / Teach us to take our time, Lady. / Teach us of the holiness of step after step / Chore after chore, moving in small circles / Around the hearth of our own beings.
    Circle round the hearthfire / Join our hands as one / Remember the Virgin Flame burns / Ageless as the Wheel turns / The place for which the heart yearns / Since this tribe has begun.
