Love Spells & Charms

To Win Love

"O Aonghus who bore the wounds of love and longing,

If this person be ordained for me,

Let me hold their hand now,

and breathe their breath.

O My Love,

I set a charm on the top of your head;

To the sole of your foot;

To each side of your breast;

That you may not leave me nor forsake me.

As a foal after a mare,

As a child after the mother,

May you stay with me and follow with me till death comes to part us asunder.

Let It Be So."

Note: This is an adaptation of a christianised charm.  Source version can be found in Ancient Legends, Mystic Charms and Superstitions of Ireland, by Lady Wilde. 1888.
