An Invokation of the Flower of the Night, LILIS:

O’ Goddess of the Garden of Earthly Delights!
LILIS, shine bright!

Venerable Queen of the Plot of Paradise,
Thy bewitching Desire does indeed entice.
To draw out from within a Power Divine,
I beseech Thee for a rapturous Sign.
Thy pure Soul from Beyond I do seek,
Thou dost alure with a Mysterious Mystique.

Lilis! Lilis! Lily of Heaven and Earth!
Inamorata, bless me with Thy ecstatic mirth!
Come forth from the Garden of Empyrean Bliss,
to Black Earth blow Thy Eternal Kiss!

O’ Adored Luminary of Aethyric Eden Divine!
LILIS, Thou Lady Luminous!
Lead I unto the Fields of Elphame in Hidden Night,
wherein I shall pluck the Gnostic Blooms of Void-Light!
Anoint mine eyes with Thy Lilian Potion,
and up from within mine own Soul I shall feel the Serpentine motion:
to rise, to ascend,
to become ONE with the Abyssal-Sea;
to expand, to burst,
to unfurl within the Divine Glory!

Lilis! Lilis! Lily of Heaven and Earth!
Inamorata, bless me with Thy ecstatic mirth!
Come forth from the Garden of Empyrean Bliss,
to Black Earth blow Thy Eternal Kiss!

O’ Sultana of Satiation!
LILIS, Thou Woman of Unearthly Creation!

Thou art the Moon and the Stars,
that rise as Roses from the Void-Meadow.
Come forth from the Dream-Lands afar,
we seek Thee in wilderness beyond the Hedgerow.
Gracious Lady of the Tame and the Wild,
men of all ages to Thy Grace aspired.
Yet, too oft’ Thy benediction reviled,
and Thy Icon of Pleasure undesired,
has left Life by Man unfulfilled and uninspired!
I seek Thee to ignite the Divine Desire,
to set Love and Truth aflame to guide as Watch-Fire:
as a Lamp-Light which draws the Moth in the Dark of Night!

Lilis! Lilis! Lily of Heaven and Earth!
Inamorata, bless me with Thy ecstatic mirth!
Come forth from the Garden of Empyrean Bliss,
to Black Earth blow Thy Eternal Kiss!

O’ Empress of the Land of Wonder!
LILIS, Dream-Adorned Mother!
I pray Thee attend this my Offering:
an Ego of Illusion mouldering,
a pure Heart unto Thee opening,
and a Soul for Divine Light desiring!
Come forth Lady of Lilian Light,
come forth via Blessed Sight!

Lilis! Lilis! Lily of Heaven and Earth!
Inamorata, bless me with Thy ecstatic mirth!
Come forth from the Garden of Empyrean Bliss,
to Black Earth blow Thy Eternal Kiss!
