And full gratitude.
Lilacs for the Lady of Mystery,
Moments for the Lord of the Wild.
Spirits of earth and air and fire and water
who come with gladness and good intent,
Yet this table has five sides.
Let us not forget ever the element of surprise,
or of humanity,
or of spirit.
Let us not forget to set an empty place
for the one who is not yet — or who is no longer — here.
