       I wrote this poem for my Wiccan ritual circle in honor of our celebration of Ostara, the Spring Equinox.

    dotsOstara Invocationdots

    Sing with me a song of spring
    of maidens crowned with moss and rose,
    where white flowers and soft grasses grow
    and birdsong rings exultant.
    Young goddesses dance in warm delight
    as newborn lambs and wildling hares
    return to bless the world.

    Iíll tell you a tale as old as winter
    and as new as every infant spring:
    Persephone walks in sunlit glades
    and Mother Earth rejoices;
    Blodeuwedd is born of broom and oak
    and magic meadowsweet;
    Freyja combs her golden hair
    and revels in her charming grace;
    Mother sighs
    with arms around her rounded waist
    and waits for something to arrive.

    Awake, awake my gentle birds:
    it is time to see the earth unfold;
    widen your wings and stretch forth your heart
    and sing the chorus of your soul.
    Darling girls, you are new, so new!
    Life is hope and second chances
    for a golden child, for an endless summer,
    for loving life and young romances.

    Fall winds blow, and winter snows
    pull at your leaves and branches,
    but remember this, my sisters, my daughters,
    my loved ones, and my friends:
    you are the root, the bud, the seed,
    and in this everlasting.

    We are Goddess flowers,
    each to each,
    and taste the rains
    with lips that have never kissed,
    and young hearts never broken.
    Iíll tell you a tale as old as winter
    and as new as every infant spring:
    You are timeless, eternal, endless;
    you are new, so new.

      This is quite beautiful, a must fave thing in fact. I hope you can circulate it through the various pagan circles for them to enjoy also. I follow Chris Orapello's podcasts and blogs, etc. and I'm sure he would enjoy this too. Would you want to capitalize the seasons in this?

    Ostara/Eostre... I wrote "Of Two Easters" as kind of an educational thing about where the name Easter actually came from along with the Easter bunny and egg thing. Write poetry and learn something in the process I always say.

      When women want to be equal, they are forgetting how transcendentally awesome they are to anybody who is not one.

    I think the tone of this beautiful rhyme seems to change for the last two stanzas. The dignity of mythical references kind of segues into the naive conversational language of the present, reality moment. Well, I put that more crudely than you do in the poem ....
