This is an ancient tradition that one's
staff (walking stick) should never be purchased,
but gifted or found. Either way,
(for those inclined) it should be invested
by walking under the full moon,
and issuing a spell/prayer ...
This is one I created from
scant translations of intent
from several languages:
to this ritual of paced enchantment.
Smile Mistress of the Night
as this new staff walks a league in silence.
Embrace Mother Earth
as power draws up from nature's pulse.
Absorb the Father,
last lingering warmth of yesteryear.
Behold the ever wand
of the squire of the approaching dawn.
Strength of arm,
peace of spirit,
depth of soul;
by bond conduct the song of everbe.
