Brew a tea with loosened leaves
and all the while hum a tune
that lulls the mind into a dream;
of darkened cave and silver pool.
Into the pool now cast your gaze
and breaths of power, three, now take
to shine with dark angelic flame
with final breath now read these words:
“Cup of knowledge read my fate
Will I be governed by love or hate?
Will I have riches? Will I be poor?
Will I find love or will I die unsure?
Will I succeed or will I fail?
Cup of knowledge, reveal thy tale!”
Drink the potion but mind to leave
a fraction of the liquid there
Three times swirl the cup around
And turn it over upon the dish.
Within the symbols now dictate
their secrets if you care to look
Your future now an open book
With open eyes now read thy fate.
