Internet Book of Shadows, (Various Authors), [1999], at

      The High Priestess goes to each of the four directions in turn,  
      and draws a Banishing Pentacle, saying, 
           Guardians of the East (South, West, North), Powers of Air  
      (Fire, Water, Earth), we thank you 
           For joining in our circle 
           And we ask for your blessing 
           As you depart 
           May there be peace between us 
           Now and forever.  Blessed be. 
      She raises her athame to the sky and touches it to the earth, then 
      opens her arms and says, 
           The circle is open, but unbroken, 
           May the peace of the Goddess 
           Go in your hearts, 
           Merry meet, and merry part. 
           And merry meet again.  Blessed be.
