Rice and Millet Invocation

(First the beer and sake is passed around, and the remainder poured out as a libation.)

I sing the praises of Rice.
Great grain of Asia,
Fruit of a million paddies,
Life of a billion people,
Grain of the rat god Daikoku,
Giver of prosperity,
I sing the praises of Rice.

(The rice porridge is passed around until it is eaten.)

I sing the praises of Millet,
Great grain of Africa,
Planted in the hot fields
Among the yams and melons
Grain of the warmest sun
Yin to buckwheat’s yang
I sing the praises of Millet.

(The millet porridge is passed around until it is eaten.)

Song: Lammas Prayer

[Pagan Book of Hours]
