Between Fire and Wall

The Idea of Fate

I desire the wood of allabair and argatbran, between fire and wall

I desire the three lean boars.

May a phantom come to meet me with the grain and milk of whoever it is on whom I cast it.

If this is destined for me, let it be grain and milk that I see.

If it is not destined for me, let it be wolves stags and wandering on the mountian and young warriors that I see.

Reference

Codex Sancti Pauli, Irish, 9th century.

Note

The word for wood can also be translated as ‘wooden piece’ i.e. an item used in the ritual of charming or the casting of lots for divination.

Milk and grain can be stolen by the use of the evil eye.
