Full Moon Magic

Full Moon rising through Midnight sky
You are Earth beneath me
and Lady on high
I invoke your power
please hear me now
Let all who look to harm the beasts
receive the light within their mind
And cause the darkness to nature cease
and evil intent to turn to kind
Horn and tusk
skin and bone
May the animals
keep their own
Let all the people throughout the world
share the vision of what we need
Love and respect for the natural world
to replace man’s selfishness and greed
Horn and tusk
skin and bone
May the animals
keep their own
May the dreadful felling of the forests end
and the wild green wood be whole once more
the bears be safe within their dens
and howls of wolves in the twilight call
Horn and tusk
skin and bone
May the animals
keep their own
May the cage doors open and the Sad be free
to live their lives as they were meant to be
in deep green forest or tawny plains
in golden sunshine and summer rains
Horn and tusk
skin and bone
May the animals
keep their own
May the horrendous torture and killing stop
the fur farms close without another blood drop
the lonesome cats in cages for tiger wine
and the bear bile farms – a tragic crime
Horn and tusk
skin and bone
May the animals
keep their own
Those who would kill or maim for gruesome sport
may angels descend and these souls be taught
consciousness in any shape or form
is to be loved, not shot, tortured or torn
Horn and tusk
skin and bone
May the animals
keep their own
And nor be forced to fight until the bloody death
or kept in chains until their dying breath
let people look into the eyes of the Other
and let them recognise a sister, a brother
Horn and tusk
skin and bone
May the animals
keep their own
Let us not eat or wear our non-human kin
and know that to keep them as slaves is a karmic sin
Our oceans and air should be pure and clean
Heaven on earth, a perfect dream!
Horn and tusk
skin and bone
May the animals
keep their own
May every animal be happy and free
as I say, so mote it be
Horn and tusk
skin and bone
May the animals
keep their own
keep their own
keep their own...
