Circle Quatrains by Hilda Marshall

Soft scented stillness that warns of the storm
Whisper of wisdom full living and warm
Breathe into us wonder at all we may know
Welcome, wise wind, from wherever you blow.

Bright spark of courage, blaze of desire
The passion for change is a wild, raging fire
Kindled by will, it burns in our veins
Welcome within us, our hearts are your flames

Power of water, power to feel
Rising within us, ancient and real
Soothed into softness or tossed to extremes
Welcome, wild waves from the depths of our dreams

Mother in waiting, child in the womb
Newly strung thread waits the night on the loom
Earth that we come from, Earth where we go
Welcome, as you welcomed us long ago.

This is by far the most poetic circle casting I've ever found. The correspondences are:
East=Air
South=Fire
West=Water
North=Earth

Feel free to use them. Hilda Marshall gave permission to spread them back in the nineties when she published them on a Pagan mailing list. Just give her credit.
