That they may root and grow and blossom, Blessed by the Sun, Watered by our mother, That our harvest be great and full.

When everyone has a packet of seeds, Sanctifier brings forth the basket, and the People say:  Bíodh sé amhlaidh! (bee shay ow lee) So be it!

CLOSING THE GATES

Presiding Druid: The Mighty Ones have blessed us!  So as we prepare to depart, let us give thanks to those who have aided us.

Sacrificer: Lovely Etain and Lord Aengus Mac Og, We thank you!

People say in unison:  We thank You!

Seer: Gods and Goddesses of elder days; mighty Ancestors; noble Spirits of the Land; our Kindreds, We thank you!

People:  We thank You!

Warrior: Manannan Mac Lir, warder of the ways, for your presence and power, for your guiding and guarding, we thank you!

People:  We thank You!

Sacrificer:  Earth Mother!  For holding up the world and granting us Your blessings, We thank You!

People:  We thank You!

Presiding Druid: Now we end what we began.  

Presiding Druid circles the nemeton clockwise, encouraging people to chant:  Close the Gates!  Close the Gates! Close the Gates!

Warrior: Let the fire be flame!  

Seer: Let the well be water!  

Sanctifier: Let all be as it was before!

Presiding Druid & Sacrificer shout: Duntar na Geatai anois! (DOON-tuhr nah GATT-eee uhnish)

Let the Gates be closed!   

And all chanting stops.

CONTINUITY AND GROUNDING
