Chanting, speaking, spells of mage –
Read the runes on parchment-page.
Spells of making, spells of fear,
Powers making things appear.
Make arise the crackling flame
Summon shadows with their name!
Speak to beasts and plants and trees,
Walk the wind with gentle ease.
Shape-shift, become beast or bird –
Soar aloft at wizard’s word.
Storms a-summon, thunders crack –
Levin-bolts use for attack.
Smoke-wraiths to deceive the eyes,
Mist-shapes weave to fool the wise.
Words command, true naming hear,
Portal open – disappear!
