I wrote a song to summon the spirits of the dead.
Because the hiragana ends with an う sound, you know this word is a verb. The kanji itself means beckon so the verb vocab version is to beckon. It can also mean to invite or to summon as well.
Since this word consists of a kanji with hiragana attached, you can bet that it will use the kun'yomi reading. You didn't learn that reading with this kanji, so here's a mnemonic to help you: You move to beckon your friend over. You can't see him well, so that's why you invite him to come closer. He is hiding something, and it turns out to be his long, luxurious horse mane (まね). Why does he have a mane!? Horse steroids?
