Triskele

You came to me on raven’s wings

Embraced and empowered me

Waited patiently for me

There is no aspect of life you do not guard or grant access to

There is no aspect of death that you are not the gatekeeper of

Through this my prayer

Accept this worship and praise

And I humbly ask you to guide and guard my days[i]

Your Temples of worship well laid.[iii]

Seven Ravens you have sent to me

Bringing joy to your heart

As you bring joy to mine.

[i] Some of the references are about my personal relationship with The Morrigan and may make no sense to someone else. I encourage any worshipper of the Morrigan to change the main charm to your own words.

[ii] Stephanie Woodfield from Celtic Lore & Spellcraft of the Dark Goddess was a great inspiration for this rosary and some of these words are hers.

[iii] This is taken directly from Tirgereh at Sacred Grove but the prayer has been removed. I did alter it for my purposes.
